  • For the most part, yes, solutions created by VS 2010 Ultimate can be opened by VS 2010 Professional, but there may be features of VS 2010 Ultimate (architecture, modeling, database, etc.) that create files that cannot be opened by the Professional edition.

    But I hope that Visual Studio 2010 Professional can at least open MFC projects created by Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate.
