Can Visual Web Developer 2008 & Visual Studio 2008 run on the same machine?

Can Visual Web Developer 2008 & Visual Studio 2008 run on the same machine?  Machine running Windows VISTA.

Looking for simplified text formatting options.  Wondering if both programs can be run (not at the same time) VWD for graphics developer and VSP 2008 for programmers.

Quick answer: I believe you can. Why not try it?

VWD for graphics developer

Why not Expression? (Which shares the same solutions/projects with VS, to make sharing easier.)

We 'tried' VISTA way too early and set our development team back three months.  Staying a head of the curve sometimes involves accidents and we are trying to minimize damage with extra knowledge of the road conditions.  Did not know about Expression, thank you for the suggestion.

Yes you can. Although VS includes everything what VWD has, so if you have VS you don't really need VWD Express anymore.

Thank you - that is what I needed to know.  The Graphic folks seem to like the graphically oriented interface of VWD or it appears to more so oriented.  That may be our lack of understanding of VS 2008 and its custom display configuration.

VWD 2008 and VS 2008 have identical pieces. VWD is a smaller version of VS. I am not sure what is more graphical in Express Smile

Visual Studio 2008 & Visual Web Developer 2005
I've been watching the great video series on ASP.NET development and am thrilled by what I've learned.  However, one feature of Visual Web Developer 2005 that is conspicuously absent from Visual Studio 2008 (which I am using) is the Layout menu.  Layout==>Position==>Autoposition Options is simply not available in VS2008 and although I've found something similar under Tools==>Options HTML Designer==CSS Styling where I can select "Change position to absolute for controls added using Toolbox, paste or drag and drop", it seems the application is...

Visual Studio 2008 includes SQL Server 2008 Express and Visual Basic 2008?
Please can somebody tell me whether Visual Studio 2008 includes SQL Server 2008 Express or 2005? Also does it include Visual Basic 2008 or 2005? Thank you.VWGolfman  VS2008 installs Sql Server 2005 Express by default. Also, VS2008 installs the new version of VB.Net BUT you can target older runtimes (i.e .Net 1.1, .Net 2, .Net 3) so you can argue that all VB.Net versions are "installed". Thank you Steven VWGolfman...
