Uninstall Previous Versions? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Just getting ready to install the MSDN May 2006 library for VS 2005 - looking to clear off some hard drive space and I noticed that my box (inherited from previous web developer) has the following installed:

    VS .NET Pro

    VS .NET Pro 2003

    VS 2005

    VS 6.0 Pro

    I was planning on keeping .NET Pro 2003 in addition to, of course, VS 2005.  Does this have any major implications? The reason I'm keeping 2003 is that a lot of systems were built before I got here and I am just learning .NET and I'm afraid I'll break something by opening it with VS 2005.

    Any input appreciated.

    VS2003 and VS2005 can exist side-by-side on the same machine with no problems.  Just be aware that the May 2006 MSDN Library will only work with VS2005. It isn't compatible with VS2003.
