Screenshot of Dialog


The attached image is a dialog that appears when a users legacy license expires. It's unclear why it's suggesting that Enterprise be purchased (which features are "business"?) and it's unclear exactly what "Use Visual Studio Professional" will do. 

Will it limit something already being used, etc?
**Additional Information:**

This dialog should include more detailed information on linking accounts with MSDN and the "new" flow for licensing.
