Installing VS2003 and VS2005 together

P: n/a
Could someone who has done it confirm for me that if I install VS2005 final
on a computer that already has VS2003 installed, it won't interfere with the
existing 2003 installation in any way?

Many thanks,

I have both of them running side-by-side without any problems.

Oenone,
In addition to the other comments:

I have VS 2002, VS 2003, & VS 2005, plus VS 6 all loaded on my computer.

I have not seen any adverse effects, then again I've only had VS 2005 loaded
for less then a day. However for how well VS 6, VS 2002, & VS 2003 play
together I would expect the same from VS 2005! In other words I strongly
suspect after two previous versions they have the "side-by-side" concept
down!

Installing VS 2005 even left my 1.1 ASP.NET applications at 1.1. You can
change which version of ASP.NET (1.0, 1.1, or 2.0) is used on a per
application basis!

FWIW: My ISP has not upgraded to 2.0 yet, so I need to continue developing
my site in 1.1 until they upgrade. They plan on upgrading "asap" after the
launch as possible...

Excellent, thanks to all of you for your replies.

I'll install when I get into work next week with confidence that it's not
going to break everything I've done for the last year. :-)

Many thanks,
