Installing ADX.Net on both VS2003 & VS2005?

We just purchased a license for an initial eveluation. I note that there are two downloads, one for VS.NET 2003 and the new one for VS.NET 2005.
Eventually, we plan to upgrade to VS.NET 2005, but right now we're still on 2003 (though a couple of machines have both).

Maybe I missed it, but is the one license key good for both the 2003 & 2005 versions? Can I install both on the same machine at the same time? Can I install 2003 now, and later install 2005 when we upgrade VS?

(Normally I'd just jump to VS.NET 2005 now, but it doesn't work properly on my main system for some reason, so I'm stuck with 2003 until I figure it out)

Thanks;
Brad.

Hi Brad.

Yes, correct.

Can I install both on the same machine at the same time?

No. Now it is impossible. We are going to solve this issue in the next ADX build.

Can I install 2003 now, and later install 2005 when we upgrade VS?

Yes.

(Normally I'd just jump to VS.NET 2005 now, but it doesn't work properly on my main system for some reason, so I'm stuck with 2003 until I figure it out)

Probably you need to install a new update for Office 2003 from Microsoft.

Thanks. To clarify, it's VS.NET 2005 *itself* which doesn't work on my system. I'm sure I've got some errant DLL somewhere, but all attempts to fix based on info posted on the various MS sites have failed. I'm doing a massive cleanup now. I'm overdue anyway.

Good luck with the dual-install fix. :D

Brad.
