This is a very frequently asked question in this forum.  Yes indeed, you can install VS2005 on the same machine with no ill effects.  The VS2003 sites can use ASP.NET 1.1 and the VS2005 sites can use 2.0.

The next question that you may have is can I run both ASP.NET 1.1 and ASP.NET 2.0 on the same server?  To answer this question look for posts on Application Pools.

I've been running both versions of Visual Studio on my Development box and all is working well.  You do need to pay attention to which version of the framework you desire you application to use though.  For example I like specifically configuring my application's virtual directory to use the version of the framework it was built for and not leave it to chance.  ASP.NET 2.0 adds a new Tab that allows you to change the version of the framework a web app uses at the website or virtual directory level.

Installing VS2003 after VS2005 was installed ?!?!
I have been trying to get up to spead on VS2005 on my notebook, so with a clean install of Windows XP all patched up, I installed VS2005, the WAP "Add on" and converted a couple of Projects.

It installed fine and when I created a new Project and built, it all looked good, but then I relized that it looks as if the build settings from VS2005 are taking over ?!?!   I expected to see my folder and build show up in my Inetpub dire...

Upgrade/migration issues from VS2003+.NET 1.1 to VS2005+.NET 2.0
Hi,  Visual Studio is great when everything works well and you don't know what is happening under the hood. However when things don't work it is really frustrating since you just don't know what is going on.  I have a project (a web site) that was originally developed for VS2003 and ASP.NET 1.1. When I loaded this project on VS2005 (and ASP.NET 2.0), VS told me that it will migrate it to the new environment: it did a number of things, generated a migration report and created/moved files under App_code and such directories. I tried this process a number of times b...

Can VS2005 and VS2003 installed on the same machine?
If not, How to convert VS2003 projects to VS2005 projects? Is it safe to use the Migration Wizard Tool? How much risk and effort for me to do this? Is there any one can help me out? Thanks!!! Yes, both VS 2003 and VS 2005 can be installed on the same machine.  It was a configuration tested throroughly before we shipped.  The Migration Tool is safe.  It prompts you to backup the web site before it migrates.  If you back up your web site before you migrate you can always revert to the original. For migration help see the migration forum http://forums.asp.n...

Migrating VS2003 to VS2005.
Hello, I have recently migrated VS2003 web application(ASP.NET 1.0) to VS2005 (ASP.NET2.0). But after migration I am getting an error saying a particular DLL is not defined. How do I register this DLL in the server so that I can overcome this problem. Note: I have migrated the application which is in different machine(i.e., Shared drive).   Thanks, Renil. You don't have to register the dll on the server.  Just put it in your App_Code folder  and then add a reference to it in Solution Explorer.

Have VS2005, ? installing VS2003
I've installed VS2005 (and converted an app using 1.x).  Now about to try installing VS2003, since for the limited changes I'm making to the 1.x app , it may be easier on me to just add them using VS2003, rather than converting it.  Anyway, VS2003 setup is flagging me to put in the prerequisites disk, saying some of my system components don't match versions required for VS2003 .NET.  I'm worried doing this will wipe out something VS2005 needs.  I would think having VS2005 installed would provide everything required by VS2003. ...

VS2003 or VS2005
Hi all, I've got a question for you. If I've got VS2005 installed in my system, but I need to code an ASP.NET v1.1 site, do I have to get VS2003 installed or is there some way to code it in VS2005? Hi, unfortunately multitargeting won't be available until the next release of Visual Studio, at the moment codenamed Orcas. And it'll also only be available for .NET 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5 since those last 2 are actually more of extensions on the .NET 2.0 framework.So yeah, at the moment when you want to create something for .NET 1.x you'll need the dedicated Visual Studio version. Also know that Vi...
