Can multiple versions of Visual Studio be installed on the same desktop computer; specifically, can the
Express version co-exists with the Professional
I am currently using Visual Basic 2010 Express version to learn how it works. I'm am reading a book on Visual Basic,
Professional Visual Basic 2010 and .Net 4, and am finding the Express version is limited in what it has to offer. I want to go ahead and purchase the Visual Studio 2010 Professional
version and install it on my Windows 7 Home Premium desktop computer. If possible, I would like to keep the Express version on my computer in case there is a problem with the Professional version installation.
I have read other forum responses to questions similar to mine. However, my question is specifically focused on whether a no-license-required version, the Express version, can co-exist on a computer with a license-required
version, the Professional version.
