VS.NET

P: n/a
Can Visual Studio.NET 2002 Enterprise Developer do
everything that Vis.Studio 6.0 does? i.e. can I uninstall
6.0 to make room for .Net?

Your advice will be much appreciated.

Welll...No. Because VS.NET is for building applications under a completely
different architecutre than VS 6. For example, you can't build ActiveX
controls in VS.NET because ActiveX controls have gone away in .NET. The
most important thing for a VS 6 developer to know before they migrate to
..NET is that .NET is NOT merely an upgrade to VS 6 and VB 6 - - It is a
completely new architecture/platform/programming language (VB.NET).

You can unistal VS 6.0 to clear out hard drive space if you need to, but VS
..NET can be installed side-by-side with VS 6.0 without any issues.

well yes and no.. .NET is like a completely different programming model
from the previous studio versions.. your source code will have to be
upgraded and even recoded in most scenarios....

If ur maintaing your old systems you best leave both versions installed.
Even if you plan to upgrade your codes you may want to leave the old version
as it is easier to rewrite old cold to prepare for the .NET source
conversions instead of recoding most of it in .NET itself. The conversion
seems more better in .NET 2003.
