Is it safe to install the CTP side by side with VS 2013?
This is nice news.
I would like if VS could somehow take over the client side debugging so that I do not have to use e.g. Firebug.
@Mohammad: client-side code debugging is working like a charm for me. You will have to use Internet Explorer though. Besides that, there is a VS addin for Chrome debugging: developer.chrome.com/.../vs-addin
@Frank, it stated in the download page that:
Side-by-side installation with earlier releases of Visual Studio is a goal for Visual Studio "14"; however, you should refrain from installing Visual Studio "14" CTP 1 on the same computer as an earlier release of Visual Studio.
BTW, CTP2 is not blocked when install SxS with VS2013, but there will be some left over files later when you uninstall it due to VS2013. And CTP are not supported, so don't put it on official machine SxS with VS2013.
