I've been asked this question by quite a few people today via e-mail & IM, so I thought I'd publish the answer to my blog.
Q: Can Visual Studio 2005 Beta 2 be installed side-by-side with Visual Studio .NET 2003?
For more information, see Installing Visual Studio.
If you do so and experience problems as a result, it's probably a bug and we'd love to hear about it. The best way to submit feedback about your Beta 2 experience is through the Product Feedback CenterProduct Feedback Center.
