Any known issues installing VS.NET 2008 and VS.NET 2005 on the samesystem?

P: n/a
I apologize if this question is answered on MSDN, I searched and could
not find a clear answer:

I have a Windows XP PC that has VS.NET 2005 Professional installed. So
far my VS.NET 2008 development has been done on a seperate Windows
Vista PC. I would like to maintain VS.NET 2005, because I need to
maintain VS.NET 2005 format for certain project do to existing
requirements/standards.

Can VS.NET 2005 Pro & VS.NET 2008 Pro coexist on the same Windows XP
Pro system? Any known complications from doing this?

Thanks.

Yes, you can install them both on the same machine. I had them set up
like that for a while on my old laptop. I never had any problems.

I have VS 2002, 2003, 2005 and 2008 on the same machine...there is no
problem at all because each version use a different install directory
and they are totally independant.
