I have both Visual C++ Express, with the SDK and SQL Server Express installed on this machine. I have just purchased VS 2005 Professional Edition, but have not installed it, as yet.

Need I uninstall the Express Editions before I install the Pro Edition

I ask since I have several applications that I have developed with the Express Editions here and on another computer, and will install the Pro Edition only on this computer. I'd like to be able to edit those original applications with the Express Editions and start new development only with the Pro Ed., and only on this machine. Further, I still have a soft spot for MFC, hence one reason for purchasing the Pro Ed.

Thanks.

Thomas

You can run both versions side-by-side (SxS), also applications that are developed with the Express Edition need to be migrated to the Professional Edition.
