mfc >> Can I put VC 6.0 and VS.NET on the same PC?

Hi,

My current development PC has Visual Studio 6.0
installed.

Can I install Visual Studio .NET on the same PC
and still have
the ability to build applications in both
environments?

Having read reams of information on VS.NET, I
can't find a clear
answer to this simple question so I wanted to
double check here.

Thanks,
RickL

Yes you can.

If you are converting VC6 projects, it is a good idea to first copy them into a new directory before loading them into VC7.

FWIW, but I have and use them both on the same PC.

Any special tricks to install both? If I wanted to have both on a PC that
has neither, which should be installed first, or doesn't it matter?

TIA
Norm

I will install VC6 first w/all the service packs and then install
VS2003.

I have both VS6 and .NET installed on the same machine. It should not
matter in what order they are installed however, in my case, VS6 was
installed first and that is the way I would recommend it.

  unsigned m_uLungDataPos
  double m_dVO2, m_dVCO2
  float m_fDNO, m_fKNO, m_fINO, m_fR2NO
  short __gxrcFinData

And here is a little method to get the size of this set of data
  size_t sz=(char *)&__gxrcFinData-(char *)&m_fStrtTime;
  return sz
In VC++ v6.0, this returns 408 bytes. In VC++.NET, it returns 412 bytes. In debugging some code that reads/writes a binary file with this data chunk in it, I can tell there is no problem up to the array m_daSolnHe. The array size is reported as 32 by both compileres. The size of the unsigned is 4 in both. I can NOT put my finger on the problem here -- does anyone know of a problem with fundamental data types in the more recent compiler version?

5. vc++ 6.0 or vc++ .net 2003?

After taking 2 semesters of C++ at school, I've decided to get a compiler for my personal use when not at school, and one that can do Windows programming.  I've pretty much come down to either vc++ .net 2003 standard or vc++ 6.0 pro.  Basically, my main reservations about .net 2003 is that from what I've read it lacks optimizations, but 6.0 seems to be more dated, "less standardized", and the support will expire soon.  Any opinions or help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

To comply with the C++ Standard?  :-)
