View Thread: Visual Studio 6 and .NET coexisting?
  • User profile image


    A year ago I had a development box running Win2K, Visual Studio 6, and Visual Studio 2003, with the .Net 1.1 runtime. I had no problems at all with both running together.

    I think the biggest thing to look out for is the changes the .Net runtime makes to MDAC, but if your system is up to date it shouldn't matter.

    That said, if you are planning on installing the Visual Studio 2005 beta / pre-release, nobody sane would recommend you doing so on a machine you use for development or production.
