I'm pretty entry level to use visual studio to write asp.net applications.
Currently we have 3 small web site applications written by me using visual studio 2005. I do have a new CD and license for visual studio 2008.
Since I'm going to change to a new computer. I wonder if I need to install visual studio 2008 or still install visual studio 2005. Will my application develped by 2005 be open and run in VS 2008? For I only devote small time of my job on programming, so
I don't want to change it too much - and would rather still keep the old version website as before.
If it can be opened in VS 2008, and run on our server as before that would be great. Hopefully I don't need to do additional installation and configuration.
And our webserver is IIS 6 on windows 2003 server.

Yes you can open 2005 projects with 2008. You might be asked if you want to upgrade the projects. If you don't click no.

Yes, migrating to VS2008 won't harm your alrady developed code and it would open perfectly. Projects might need a conversion which VS2008 will convert using its wizard on opening. So, sit back and enjoy VS2008.
