Installing Visual Studio 2005 Professional Edition to Windows XP Home RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm considering installing Visual Studio 2005 Professional Edition for the purpose of supporting my study for the MCPD - Web developer (.NET 2.0) exams. I'm aware that Microsoft Windows XP SP2 is a pre-requisite. The machine on which I intend to install Visual Studio 2005 Professional Edition has the following OS:

    Microsft Windows XP
    Home Edition
    Version 2002
    Service Pack 3 

    Is this sufficient ?
