Hi,

I have a number of questions regardingVisual Studio and  SQL Server. I'm
running Vista Ultimate SP1 and have Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate installed.
I also already have all versions of .Net Framework from 1.0 thru 3.5
installed.

1. Is it ok to install Visual Studio 2003, 2005 and 2008 on the same
machine? I assume the order would be 2003, 2005 then 2008.

2. Will there be any issues with different versions of MSDN, or alternately,
will the latest MSDN support all 3 versions?

3. I also need to install SQL Server 2000 and 2005. What is the proper
sequence for installing VS and SQL Server?

Thanks in advance for your help.
