Installing & Using Both .NET and .NET 2003

P: n/a
Has anyone tried having both the original .NET and .NET 2003 on their
workstation at the same time? I now need to build and support apps for two
different clients that use different versions so I'm wondering if I can use
the same workstation to build, test, and support apps for both clients.

Thanks

Hi Earl

Although I have recently removed VS2002 (and Framework V1.0), I did have
VS2002 and VS2003 running side-by-side for some time, without problem.

Did you ever have any trouble with VS2002 apps running on servers that
didn't have any VS2003-related upgrades done?

I guess I'm just having nightmares where a tiny change in a VS2002 app
refuses to work on one of my VS2002 servers because some VS2003 dependency
trickled in during my build.

Thanks very much.

VS2002 knows nothing of the Framework V1.1, so can't pick up any inadvertent
references to it. In fact, many people have posted (including myself
originally) asking how to get VS2002 to use Framework V1.1 and the
resounding response was that it just cannot be done.

So, on that basis, I would not expect a VS2002 app to be upset about the
absence of Framework V1.1.

Hi Charles,

This week on the 7th was a lady Erica Roberts, who was a little bit sad
because she did not get an answer.

I told here that the real webbrowser specialist was mostly only here from
friday till sunday.

It was not that simple, that I could give here an answer and it is something
I never did but intresting.
But because of the change searching for an answer and knowing that you know
it probably direct, I told here that the best she could do to wait some days
and hope that you would see it earlier.

The subject is error and the name you have.

:-)

Hello Earl,

Thanks for your post. As you know, .NET Framework has built-in side-by-side
support so that we can have both Visual Studio .NET 2002 and 2003 installed
on a single system without any problem. I have a test system with both
installed and they work properly.

In addition, please be noted that:
"While we fully expect version 1.0 applications to execute in the 1.1
Framework, allowing 1.1 applications to execute in the version 1.0
Framework is much more difficult. Getting this to work involves
considerable forethought on the part of the developer to avoid using new
functionality that is not available in the 1.0 Framework. Applications that
use features that are only found in the 1.1 Framework simply will not
operate in the 1.0 Framework. A list of these features can be found at
http://www.gotdotnet.com/team/changeinfo/Forwards1.0to1.1/default.aspx."

In addition, an application can choose which version of the common language
runtime or of a component it uses by some means say, applicaiton
configuration file. For detailed information, please refer to the following
MSDN articles:

Side-by-Side Execution of the .NET Framework
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...us/dnnetdep/ht
ml/sidexsidenet.asp

Using Side-by-Side Execution
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...us/cpguide/htm

Please feel free to let me know if you have any problems or concerns.

Have a nice day!

Should work.
