Well, they are both independent of each other, they go into seperate directories and they have minimal shared components, so it shouldn't really cause problems.
If you do see any strangeness just do a repair of VS2010, that should fix any issues. Although if the only things that get messed up are file associations then it is easy enough to fix those just by running VS2010 as administrator and then click the restore associations button in Tools->Options.
This is a signature
Any samples given are not meant to have error checking or show best practices. They are meant to just illustrate a point. I may also give inefficient code or introduce some problems to discourage copy/paste coding. This is because the major point of my posts is to aid in the learning process.
Do you want Visual Studio 11 Express to be freely installable on Windows 7 and able to write regular C++ applications? Please vote for this.
