Visual Studio version

Posted 04 May 2010 - 03:59 PM

My college finally gave us access to Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate (via MSDNAA) and so I grabbed and installed it. Disappointed they only had the x86 version but no matter. Previously I did have VS2008 Pro installed. Should I still keep it if I am in no big need of disc space or just keep 2010? My book on C# uses 2010 and is based on WPF which I know VS2008 can do.

Why not just keep both, that's what I have (Well actually I have Visual Studio.NET, Visual Studio 2005, 2008 & 2010 installed currently).

EDIT: Since this has nothing to do with C# and isnt a programming help question I'm moving this to Corner Cubical

Sorry for posting in the wrong area. I could just keep them both and migrate all my projects to 2010.

Unless you just need the disc space, keep both. You never know when you might need 08.

I use 2005 and 2008. 2005 because it's the only one to access Reporting Service report projects from our 2005 SQL server. One of these days we'll upgrade that server and get the fancy new reports.. one of these days.

I do not know your particular scenario but I will tell you mine and say keep all you have :online2long:

I have 08, 10 express (got it from www.dreamspark.com using my .edu email)

I turned in a assignment at AIU using 2010 express and was rejected. Said he didn't have it installed and will not accept it. I am not a pro at all in any way shape or form. But i thought that VS2010express was faster and performed better in all areas. But he will not take it so i have to use 08 for another week.

I think I may be in the same boat as you bocaccio I just submitted my final assignment about two weeks and ago, and it's still not graded, because I upgraded from 08 to 10. The only thing I don't like about 2010 is runs really slow on my computer. May just be my computer though.

Do you take online classes? Your rep and posts tells me that you know TONS more than me. After saying that; you really think 2010 is slower? I can't say i noticed a major difference but i did think it was faster not slower. The test would be to try it on my netbook though.
Did you buy it or its a trial?
