I am working on a Visual Studio 2003 project. I have been assigned the task of converting the 2003 project code to vs 2005. We need to preserve the 2003 code because it will continue for a while to be built and placed into production for several months.
My biggest worry is that there will be some type of conflict if I have two versions of the same project on my machine, one in vs 2003 and the other in vs 2005.
What is the best way to go about this? Let's say I have a project in source safe named FinancialCalculationsApp. Currently the 2003 version resides in my virtual directory: Inetpub\wwwroot\FinancialCalculationsApp.
So question? Where should I copy this project to on my hard drive? Do I need to copy it to a different directory name, and then try converting the code?

You can run both 1.1 and 2.0 versions of your web project side-by-side. Just copy the project in some local directory, create a new virtual directory in IIS and set the ASP.NET version accordingly.
After that you can try converting the code.
