Hi

Is it possible to install and use vs2003/net1.1 and vs2005/net2 side by side
on the same drive? Only from experience please.

Thanks

John,

I am doing it at the moment with RC1 (I did it with april and august).

However if it will be a problem, than I probably will have the same as you.

RC1 is still a kind of Beta, so "no problem" is not guaranteed.

I hope this helps,

Cor

I am guessing, this means no obvious problem so far?

It works for me. I'm using VS 2005 Beta 2, if that matters.

..NET 2.0 installs into a different directory
VS 2005 installs into a different directory

Thus far, 0 problems. Have tested April CTP, May CTp, Beta 2, August CTP and
the RC. I do not do this on my production machine, as I am a bit paranoid,
but it works fine on the machines I have had it on.

Yup. VS.Net 2005 is cucrently at the Release Candidate stage, and I have
seen a few minor (but manageable) issues with having both installed, less
with each revision released. But I use both quite often, even at the same
time.

The only problem I've seen reported is that VS 2003
must be installed previous to VS 2005 being installed.

Otherwise, the VS 2003 documentation has problems.

Other than that, I haven't heard of any problems.

It would be wise, anyway, to install them into a virtual machine,
so that -if you do have a problem- eliminating it is easy and painless.

I've had problems, especially around file extensions, or when working with
XML etc. Honestly, I don't think I'd want to do it in my paid for
development environment, but from an experience "play with it" point of
view - it may work. ASP.NET will be a bigger pain in the ar~~se.
