VS2010 RC vs VS2010 Retail solution/project files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Are the project files between the RC and "final" VS2010 compatible?  Is the final/retail version going to prompt us to "upgrade" them, which would then prevent anyone still using the RC from opening the project?

    Several developers have been using VS2010 RC on a new project.  Some of us have MSDN subscriptions, some do not.  Obviously, those of us that do could install the "final" VS2010 immediately.  We have started a purchase req on our end for the others, but that will take some time to go through.



    PS: Wasn't sure this was REALLY the ideal forum for this, but could not locate a "Visual Studio" forum that seemed appropriate for generic project/solution topics.

  • No the versions are the same.  There will be no upgrade prompt.  Just be aware that the RC will expire soon so they'll want to get the final version ASAP.
