  • Hi hosemaria,

    They don't have the compatibility issue in the same PC, so you could install/uninstall anyone of them freely, and it will not impact the another version.

    If any reply was helpful for you, you could mark it as the answer, so we could close this case for you.

    If you have any other VS IDE usage issue, feel free to share it.

    Best Regards,

    Jack

  • Hi,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    Yes, you can.

    Visual studio community 2017 and express 2017 for windows desktop are two products, you can uninstall visual studio community 2017 via visual studio installer and continue to use express 2017.

    Visual Studio Express 2017 is available for Windows Desktop developers. This will be the final version of Visual Studio Express, and there will not be a UWP or Web offering of Visual Studio Express 2017. We encourage all users to look at the free development options offered by Microsoft such as Visual Studio Code and Visual Studio Community for future development needs.

    Best regards,

    Joyce
