Running both versions VS2005-VS2003 / ASP.NET 2.0

Hello,

I see that VS2005 and the new framework 2.0 is out to the public now.
Wondering about some things.

When you install the new framework 2.0 can a person still use visual studio
2003 or do you need to use Visual Studio 2005?

If you can use the new framework 2.0 with VS2003 are there any benifits?

Can you run VS2003 and VS2005 on the same machine?

Do VS2003 projects port over to Visual Studio 2005 without much of a problem?
The main reason I ask is I have projects I have done for customers with the
framework verison 1.1 using VS2003. Wanting to know the implications or
upgrade path to use the VS2005 while maintaining my other customers with
projects built on VS2003 and framework version 1.1.
Thanks,

Darrin

VS2003 will always use the 1.1 version of the framework.
VS2005 will always use the 2.0 version of the framework.
You cannot use the 2.0 framework with VS2003.

VS2003 projects port over to VS2005 pretty seamlessly. As always make a
backup first.

VS2003 and VS2005 for very well side by side on the same machine.

Unless your customer is willing to pay for the upgrade, I would leave them
where they are. In general simply upgrading a project to VS2005 / 2.0 will
not give you any additional functionality or performance.

You can still use both. VS 2003 still compiles for 1.1 and VS 2005 compiles
for 2.0
If you can use the new framework 2.0 with VS2003 are there any benifits?
You cannot.
Can you run VS2003 and VS2005 on the same machine?
Yes.

I'll let others that have actually succeeded doing it answer that. The
little I did was a mess. :) VS 2005 expects your HTML to be in XHTML format.
The wizard doesn't convert it for you. You can probably change the !DOCTYPE
to prevent all the errors, but I haven't gotten that far yet.
