Thread: Installing Visual Studio 6 *after* .NET??

    Installing Visual Studio 6 *after* .NET??

    I apologize if this question has already been answered, but I couldn't get
    anything out of the DevX search tool.

    Are there any known issues with installing Visual Studio 6 *after* installing
    Visual Studio .NET? Or the "non-.NET" MSDN Library? I am running Windows 2000
    Professional.

    I finished setting up my new computer, and I got so excited I installed VS.NET
    right away. D'oh!

    I think, to be on the safe side, VS.NET should be the last thing you install
    on the machine.

    You're probably right, but I would really like to hear about *known issues*.

    I know that there have been some individuals that have had problems with
    aspx files when installing SP5 for VS6 after installing Dotnet. However, I
    don't know if anything has been confirmed yet. . ..

    I had the .NET framework on my machine and I already had VS6-sp4 before.
    Then I istalled vs6-sp5 and tryed to install VS.NET ... I couldn't install
    VS.NET the setup just crashes and does not detect that the previously
    installed components are already there (MSXML 3, W2K-sp1, etc..)

    I did the same thing a few months ago. Created a clean parition of
    Win2K pro and then threw .NET on it. A couple of weeks ago I wanted to
    play around with COM Interop and I was thinking "oops..."

    Well, I went and ran the install and .NET seems to be fine -- as does
    VB6. But I haven't tested it hard, so YMMV..
