VS 2010 and VS 2011 side by side RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    As per this post 

    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/lightswitch/thread/2f67d496-5a1f-46fd-85e3-f056c0b4822c

    you can install vs2010 and vs2012 (RC) side by side (I have a W7 box with VS 2010 and LS 2011 *but* not VS2012). 

    I read somewhere, but I can't find now where, that doing this could break extensions in VS2010-LS. 

    I can't upgrade my LS-2011 apps to LS in vs2012 because I heavily depend on XtraReports in my LS apps and DevExpress hasn't yet upgraded this extension, so I am stuck with VS2010 for now. I just want to develop some simple LS apps in VS2012 just to start using this new LS version *before* the final version is released. 

    Can somebody that uses XtraReports in VS2010-LS *and* has installed VS2012RC side by side make some comments about LS v1 and LS v2 living and working together? 

    Many thanks for your help and bye ...

  • Hi Marden, 

    I have exactly the same configuration as you have; well ... except for VS2012 RC. 

    Your answer is helping a lot to me. I will install VS2012 RC and try doing some new small projects on it. 

    Thanks again and bye ...
