Installing Visual Studio 2005 post Uninstalling Visual Studio 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to install Visual Studio 2005 post uninstalling the Visual Studio 2010 but every time its prompting to uninstall the trial version is already installed on this computer. I installed 2010 from MSDN site and registered it with the license. But now when i am trying to install 2005 the trial version thing keeps bugging..  I am not sure how to install 2005 Visual Studio.

    Can anyone help.

  • Hi Amritanshu,

    Any updates to this issue? Could you please paste more details for us?

    If you mean you want to install VS2005 but Visual Studio 2010 trial blocked your action. We need more details to analyze.
