    You can install Visual Studio 2012 on your computer with Visual Studio 2010 remaining installed.  In fact, I have VS 2008, 2010, and 2012 all installed on one computer.

    Hi Jeffcarter;

    VS 2010 and VS 2012 will run on the same computer with no problems. So you can install VS 2012 and leave VS2010 in place or you can uninstall VS 2010 and then install VS 2012 what ever fits your needs.
