VS side by side installations.

Recommended Posts

I want to have a look at visual studio community 2015, but I'm not ready to uninstall my 2010 ultimate version 

Apparently it's possible but this bit worries me a little...

We recommend that you install Visual Studio versions in the order in which they were released. For example, install Visual Studio 2013 before you install Visual Studio 2013.

I'm sure that's a typo with both 2013, but it implies I should install every version later than 2010 before installing 2015.

Anyone have experience doing this?

You just end up with a million versions of SQL express and tools no matter how minimal an install you try. It all works fine though. When Win10 is released I'll refresh my coding VM with VS 2013 (as minimal as pos) and 2015 I think.

Has anyone tried uninstalling the either version after having two or more?

The article says what to expect with file extension, but wondering if any other non mentioned issues arose.

I'm worried because it's not something I want to keep trying with to get it right, as VS takes about 1 hour to install on my machine, and not far off that to uninstall.
