Visual Studio Pro Edition and VWD Express Editions on the same machine

P: n/a
My main dev machine has WinXp and VS2005 (pro).
1. I need to install VWD Express Edition so that I can do some instruction
on this. Any issues with both on the same machine. Installation order?
2. Does VWD Express Edition support the idea of Solutions? I coun't figure
out how to create a blank solution which I usually do with VS2005 (and then
add my web site to the solution.)
Thanks,

Hi Andrew,

Welcome to MSDN newsgroup.
As for the VS 2005 pro edition with VWD Express on the same machine, based
on my understanding the Visual Studio 2005 professional edition has
included all the other single express edition like visual web dev express,
visual c# express, visual basic .net express...... So have you used the
full installation of vs 2005 pro? If so you should already have web
application development environement on that server and we don't need to
install another instance of web develper express...

Steven,

1. I need to demo this product for a group of novices. I realize that VS
2005 Pro does everything that VWD Express does but running the Pro Edition
will not give them a realistic experience.

2. Does VWD Express support Solutions?

Thanks,

-A

There will be no issues. Both will be installed in the c:\Program
Files\Visual Studio 8\

However, VWD would install in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio
8\Microsoft Visual Web Developer Express Edition - ENU\

Thanks for your quick response Andrew,

For VWD Express , it does support a simple solution model for grouping
website projects(sln files and suo files...). However, it is not displayed
by default (you can find sln file for your created websites , by default
under MyDocuments folder....). To make your VWD express always display
solution node in explorer, you can change the setting through the following
setting:

tools--->options

check "Show all settings"

select "Projects and Solutions" node in the left view

and check teh "Always show soluion" option in the right view.... Anyway,
VWD express is a free tool which has very limited functionality compared to
pro or teamsuite edition...

Hope helps. Thanks,
