visual c++ express confusion

I have read Visual C++ 2010 express and Visual C++ 2008 express are okay for use commercially. This is great I'm happy. I am confused though the startup screen on the C++ 2010 express says, "for evaluation purposes only, Use of this software should be limited to evaluation purposes only." Could I get some clarification please?



Found the answer! Displays evaluation until registered within 30 days.

It's trying to say that you have to register the product. After 30 days, the program should prompt you to register the product (You don't have to pay, just fill out a brief survey), then you will receive a registration code. Enter it in and you will be legally able to commercially distribute your product.

If you plan on commercially releasing your product I believe you have to give your clients/customers a release build, not a debug one.
