Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You’ll need Windows licenses for the servers running IIS. There are no license needs for your C# application.

    Visual Studio Express Editions are a set of free lightweight individual IDEs which are provided as stripped-down versions of the Visual Studio IDE on a per-platform basis or per-language basis, i.e., it installs the development tools for the supported platforms (web, Windows) or supported development languages (VB, C#) onto individual Visual Studio Shell AppIds. It includes only a small set of tools as compared to the other systems. It does not include support for plug-ins. x64 compilers are not included in the Visual Studio Express edition IDEs, but are available as part of a Windows Software Development Kit that can be installed separately. Express editions do not use the full MSDN Library but use the MSDN Essentials Library. It includes : 1. Visual Basic Express 2. Visual C++ Express 3. Visual C# Express 4. Visual Web Developer Express 5. Express for Windows Phone

    Now you know what the Visual Studio Express Editions are, and what they include. As for your question, as Mrdenny stated there are no license needs for the C# application, no matter whether you deploy it to a production environment or you develop it just for testing or learning.
