Can the CTP version run alongside the existing editions?

From our testing, they run side-by-side... but the uninstallation of Orcas may affect 2005.  This is part of the reason for the "CTP" designation.

Is there anyway to download the installation files for the Orcas so that they can be installed on a machine without net access?  The download links I've seen seem to download a setup .exe rather than the full tool.

We will be posting a CD-image (ISO) download soon.  I'll post to this thread once they're available.  Thanks!

I ran VS 2005 SP1 and VS Orcas March CTP side by side and that worked just fine, I've not tried running Beta 1 side by side with VS 2005 though.

Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Edition...Can't connect to Database
Sorry to bring this topic up again....seems like such a noobie question, however I have done almost everything I can to try to connect to database through the ASP.NET Configuration and then going to  "Provider Configuration". When I first started using this program maybe a week or so ago, I had Windows XP. The only thing that I specified in my firewall was just to give access to VWD, and that was it. But recently after getting Windows Vista, I am sure it is not the operating system, I can't seem to connect to the database. This has been going on for some time now and I hav...

Maybe I am missing something extremely obvious. So obvious that I am blinded by it. When you create a website through VWD, the default location for saving is: My Documents\Visual Studio 2008\WebSites\AppName . You can remove the website by deleting that fo...
