We've had a number of customers who are only given the option to purchase when starting Visual Studio. I believe that we should still be offering an option for a trial. I have seen at least 3 cases in the last 2 days of customers not being able to start a trial.
These customers have confirmed that they haven't had a previous trial and have no licenses installed.
I will link to the cases when I find them.
Have you tried this on a clean machine? I've seen the Trial option every time I've reset my machine.
I've not experienced the issue myself but will investigate it on a clean system (fires up a VM).
Will get back to you on that!
Today, We have checked this issue with following builds:
Windows 7 and 8
If a user is logged in with fresh a account which does not have any license We are seeing Begin a trial option and user is successfully able to activate it. Hence marking this as Verified Fixed.
