Visual Basic 17 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been working with Visual Basic 2010 Express on my Desktop using Windows 10.  I need to know if I download and install Visual Basic 2017 on the same computer will there be any problems running both versions.  I have many applications that are currently running on the 2010 version but want to start getting my hands wet with the latest 2017 version.  I just want to make sure there wont be any issues and hoped that some of you being so familiar with VB can tell me.

    Thanks Les

  • Hi

    I have had two versions running without issue. Not those two in particular, (can't remember now which they were), but I *think* one of them was  2010.

  • Should be zero issues.

    I've had up to three different releases of Visual Studio on my computer and no problems.

  • Visual Studios supports side-by-side installations of multiple versions.

  • Just for the record it is Visual Basic 15 which is included in Visual Studio 2017. 

    VB17 does not (yet) exist. 

    But nobody can guarantee what you ask. You can be the first.

  • There is a Visual Studio Forum for asking questions related to running multiple Visual Studios on a single system regardless of the language you want to use.

  • Hi Cor

    I went to the site and I only downloaded what they claimed was Visual Studio 2015 but when I went to run the install it said it was Visual Basic 14.  Any possibility you can provide me the link where I can download the most up to date version of Visual Basic??  I do not want a Trial Version but the version they offer for free.  I currently have Visual Basic 2010 on my system and very interested in learning the newest version.

    Thanks Les
