    Can I install vs2022 and leave vs2008 installed?

    Simply I need to start using vs2022 for what I need to do, but don't want to lose access to vs2008 as I still may need it.

    So install it. They install side by side just fine. At one point I has VB6, VS2008, VS2010, VS2012, and VS 2015 all installed at the same time.

    vs2022 is a big long install process I see.

    The only thing I would recommend is that if you are installing different versions like this, install them in the order of oldest to newest. So, I think it may be possible to run in to problems if you installed 2022 first, then something like 2015, and then 2008. But if you want those three, installing 2008, then 2015, and finally 2022 should be just fine.

    yes, I started with 2008, I have 2022 now as 2008 is beginning to cause me some confusion and some other issues.

    I just started a thread on vs2008 and project references and can you look at it, it is strangely incomprehensible to me.

    When you installed VS 2008, you installed ALL of it. Starting around VS2019, VS became somewhat modular. You don't need to install ALL of it right off, and likely don't need to. Adding other pieces later on is entirely possible. For example, if you aren't doing web development, you can leave out some pieces. Of course, this is because the whole of VS is now so big that not only does nobody need all of it, but you don't want to deal with installing all of it.

    Note that VS2022 17.7 and later requires at least Windows 10 v1909.
