Visual Web Developer/VStudio.Net

Hi,
I have VStudio.Net 2003 installed but can i install Visual Web
Developer also on the same PC.
My current .Net Frameork version is 1.1.
Will the Visual Web Developer install ASP.NET 2.0?
And if i do will it affect my other applications?
I want ot build ASP.NET 2.0 apps!!!

You should not install beta software on important work machines.
I run ASP.NET 2.0 in a Virtual PC.

If you install ASP.NET 2.0 inside a Virtual PC on your machine then yes, you
can install them both with NO WORRIES.

Hi, Patrick.

You should read VWD 2005's readme file :

http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/expres...e/default.aspx

Two points stand out ( although the others are important, too ) :

1.
"The Beta1 Express editions have been tested side-by-side
with Visual Studio .NET 2003 and these two editions can
be installed on the same computer."

It's not compatible, side-by-side, with VS.NET 2002, though.

Steve's advice is valid, though.

You should not install *any* beta products in a partition
which you can't affor to simply wipe out and start over from.

Installing Virtual PC or VMWare may help,
although some system sluggishness usually results.

Virtual machines require gobs of RAM ( and I mean a LOT! ).

I now prefer to, simply, add a clean drive partition, install betas there,
and when I'm finished, wipe the partition clean and restart the
process by installing a fresh OS and new betas to that partition.

Whatever messes up in one partition should not affect
your day-in-and-day-out installation in another partition.

2.
"Visual Studio file extensions are unregistered
when Express edition is uninstalled.

If multiple Beta1 Express editions are installed on the same computer,
and then one is uninstalled, the uninstall unregisters file extensions it
has
in common with the other Express editions.

This disables the ability to open a Visual Studio file type
(.cs or .vb, for example) by double-clicking on file icons
in Windows Explorer. This will be corrected by the final release.

There are two ways to work around this problem.

Reassociate the Visual Studio file-type extentions in the Folder Options
dialog box (in the File Types tab), which you can access using the
Explorer's Tools | Folder Options menu.

Alternatively, uninstall and reinstall the
Express editions to reregister the file extensions."

Although it's not mentioned that uninstalling VWD will affect
VS.NET 2003, it looks that, if the file associations are removed
for VWD Express, that VS.NET will not be associated with
the open command for those files types when you double-click
them in Windows Explorer.

Fortunately, the fix is quite simple.

Give the readme a thourough reading, and see if any of the
points mentioned would affect your decision to install VWD,
depending on how severely any of the conditions affect you.

There is a mistake in that documentation, btw.

It's point 2.6, where it states that "SQL Server© Express is the
only version of SQL Server that works with the Express Editions
of Visual Studio 2005 Beta".

I am running both VWD Express and VS.NET 2005 betas,
and they both connect to SQL Server 2000 without problems.

Hi, Patrick.

"NO WORRIES" can't be guaranteed when you
are installing beta versions of not-yet-released
developer tools.

All you can do is take appropiate precautions,
like installing to a virtual machine, if you have
enough RAM and don't mind a little sluggishness,
or installing to a new partition which you can wipe
if someting goes catastrophically wrong.

Testing a developer tool is not like testing an OS,
which can lead to wiping out a whole hard drive.

If something goes wrong in the new partition where you
installed side-by-side editions of VS.NET 2003
and VWD 2005 Express, you can format the partition
and start over : no problem.

I wouldn't install any beta products
in my main partition, though.

But, with hard disk sizes of +250GB available now,
setting up twelve 20GB partitions which you can use to
test different environments/dev tools is a worry-less snap.

If you have an 80GB HDD, you could set up a 20GB
main partition, plus six 10GB partitions for testing purposes.
