It’s not necessary to remove older versions of Visual Studio when installing a new version. This tutorial shows the side deploy model and includes a simple tip that shows how to instantly know which version you’re running.
- [Narrator] I've seen a lot of development teams…where some of the team members have to keep older…copies of their developer tools available so…that they can work on legacy code.…Now there's a variety of strategies I've seen used.…One common one is to create virtual machines…and put the old software on there…and then spin up the virtual machine when necessary.…What I want to talk about here is the side-by-side…installation or deployment of different versions…of Visual Studio.…Microsoft does not force us to remove older versions…of Visual Studio when you install a newer copy.…
So if you've got 2015 already installed on your machine,…you can install 2017 and it won't affect Visual Studio 2015.…Now there are some caveats to this.…Microsoft suggests that you always install your older…versions first and then your newer ones.…Which would imply that you don't install 2017 and then later…go back and install Visual Studio 2012.…Although, I have done that in the past…and didn't have any issues.…That's a suggestion from Microsoft.…
