Visual Studio 2010 compatibility with windows server 2016

We are planning to upgrade our windows server from 2003 to 2016.
In our existing windows server 2003 we hosted dotnet webservers and its running on visual studion 2010.
If we upgrade server from 2003 to 2016, is this required to upgrade my visual studio application from 2010 to higher version or the same version VS2010 will perform without any disturbances in server 2016 or higher versions.

Well visual studios is just the IDE and doesn't really dictate the compatibility of your developed code. That will be determined by which .NET framework you target in the project. Older .NET applications should still run on server 2016, but it's always a good idea to update your code base as the older ones will be come EOL. Changing the target framework can result in some code redesign/rewrites as methods change from framework to framework. VS2010 itself is an EOL product as of 2 years ago.
