Is a Visual Studio license required?

Problem to solve

Is there a need to provide Visual Studio licensing to GitLab in order to build a project that requires VS Built Tools? Or is that already taken care of. I’ve seen that the GitLab shared runners already have access to VS Built Tools, but I’m wondering if any additional license requirements exist.

Since Visual Studio is a Microsoft product, that would more likely to be a question for Microsoft TBH.

For example, I can pull docker images for RHEL, but to actually then install something later from RHEL repositories, I still need to apply a RHEL subscription.
