I currently have Visual Studio Team Edition for Software Developers on my laptop. I would like to try the new Database Professional product and I need Visual Studio Team Suite Trial installed to do this.

My question is this. Can I leave VSTE for SD on my laptop and install the VSTS Trial without harming or overwriting my VSTE for SD installation I would like to have both products on my laptop.

Thanks - Amos.

No, it'd want to upgrade you to suite as part of that trial install.

Richard,

Thanks for the response. If I understand correctly, since I currently have VSTE for Software Developers installed, if I try to install the trial edition of Team Suite, it will upgrade my copy of VSTE for S.D. to the trial Team Suite edition If so, will it keep all my current VSTE settings, such as my installed components and other settings

Thanks - Amos.

Hi Amos,

I can tell you from experience that that is the case. I upgraded my laptop from VS Pro - > VSTE Developer -> VS Team Suite -> and the last installation was Data Dude on top of the VSTS.

At all times the projects, settings, etc. were not touched. At the next opening of VS, if you were not looking for the additional items, you didn't notice there was any new installation at all. Even the start page (recent projects etc.) was retained.

Alle,

I forgot to ask this. I currently have DataDude CTP6 installed. I believe I have to uninstall this before I install the Team Suite Trial and then the RTM of DataDude

Amos -

Yes, before you install the RTM version (trial or full version), you must uninstall any CTP build of Team Edition for Database Professionals.

thanks,
