VStudio 2003 and 2005 on the same workstation?

Hello all,

I have VStudio 2005 currently installed on my workstation. However, I am
collaborating on a project with an outside consultant who is using VS 2003.
Every so often he sends me new or updated modules to add to the project and
I will send him my updates so that we stay in synch.

I tried loading the project (solution) into VS 2005 and it warned that
changes would be made that would result in incomptibility with VS 2003.

So, can I install VS 2003 on the same development workstation side-by-side
with VS 2005 and have them both be operable?

Thanks for your input.

Yep, shouldn't have a problem with it - this is the same set up I have on my
home and office machines.

Thanks Alex....
When I was doing some searching on this topic, there seemed to be some
disagreement, but now that I look again, the problem seemed to be confined
to the Beta versions of 2005.
Have a good day...

Provided you intend to keep VS'2003 Solutions in VS'2003 and VS'2005
Solutions in VS'2005 then yes. That works.

Trying to use VS'2003 (or, indeed, VS'2005) Solutions in /both/ VS'2003
and '2005 - No.
If you have to go down this road, then you /might/ get away with sharing
the Source files between separate Solution and Project files for each
version of Studio, but that's as close as you'll get.

Phil,
Thanks for the clarification.
I will be keeping the VS 2003 solutions separate from those being developed
in VS 2005, until such time as the developers we collaborate with have
upgraded their code to VS 2005.

What is the proper method for setting up visual studio 2003 to store and run solutions on a windoes 2003 webserver? Using vstudio enterprise on a WinXP client. Major issue is that SafeSource says it can't check out .aspx items. Any docs on how to configure this? I guess it would be the same for deploying a solution to win2003 Server.

We have two (2) workstations and one (1) server. All are running Windows 2000 Professional (not "Server"). Have NOT loaded Visual SourceSafe Server yet, but intend to. Loaded VS.NET and IIS on the server. (Note: I realize that I didn't have to install VS.NET *on* the server, but I wanted the ability to test stuff directly there) Loaded VS.NET on a workstation, but did NOT install IIS.

We have a very large C# winforms client application that is constructed as a single solution currently with 75 projects. We're currently using VS 2003 but will upgrade to 2005 some time next year. We've noticed that Visual Studio is terribly inefficient about a lot of things, and my testing with 2005 seems to indicate those problems may actually be worse there. On average, it can take 3 to 5 minutes to simply open the solution while...
