Hello and thanks for your time.
I am trying to install game studio express on a machine that has visual studio 2005 installed. However, It asks me to install visual C# 2005 express edition. Is there a way I can make it work with vs2005. If not, would installing visual C# 2005 express edition in a machine that has vs 2005 cause any problems (I am concerned cause this is our development machine for other projects and I want to make sure that the express edition does not alter anything)
Thanks
MS

C# Express installs side by side with VS 2005. You can do this without any problems.

as the poster aboe said, it works jsut fine side-by-side, but afaik you cannot get the express edition to work with VS (though, why would you ). Particularly if you are looking to get XNA to work within VS2005, I would say no, because XNA has specific objects that will only work using the Express Edition (the game related methods and such).
