Hi there,

I am a MS Access VBA programmer trying to get my feet wet using VB.net / SQL
server.
I have SLQ 2000/visual studio 2003 loaded and did get a SQL2005/visual
studio 2005 software through the MS launch.

I am now wondering how to setup my laptop so I can use theh two sets
together (not at the same time of course).
I have also been told there might be issues of interaction between framework
2.0 (on XP?) and the older frameworks.

My laptop is XP sp2, I do have access to virtual PC as well though action
pack, SQL and visual studio will not run on startup
as I will still do a lot of classic Access VBA programming as well.

Can anybody give me some professional advise on this as I do not seem to get
a straight answer from people I thought were specialists?

Philip

PS how can I disable my e-mail to show up in the list to prevent spam on
this e-mail address, thanks,

Hi Philip,

I'm not a .NET expert or a SQL expert, but I thought the whole reason for
having versions of the .NET framework was that they could all be on one
machine without breaking each other, and without breaking apps - each app
would find the appropriate version and use it.

Windows Update will offer you all versions of the .NET framework as updates
and will tell you that you need to update if you're missing one of them.
Check out C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\ and see which versions of the
framework you've got there already.

I've done just fine with VS 2003 and VS 2005 and SQL 2000 and SQL 2005 all
on the same machine (not VM.) I've had VS 2003 & 2005 open at the same time.
You can't share projects among versions though, and perhaps your friends
were referring to this fact. Also, you can list your SQL 2000 databases in
the SQL 2005 development studio without hurting them.

My laptop has basically every developer thing in an MSDN subscription all
fully loaded at once, including versions of the MSDN Library, and other than
being short on space <g> it's very happy.

I see you're using Outlook Express. If you don't want your email to show
then you can put in something like http://www.pcreview.co.uk/forums/(E-Mail Removed) in the email box of
the account setup dialog. If you want to let people who might want to
contact you know what your actual email address is then put something in
your footer that people can figure out but machines can't: "Philip At LeDuc
Dot Com" or (E-Mail Removed)
