I have installed on my machine Visual Studio 2012 Express and Visual Studio 2013 Express. I have projects developed in ASP.NET MVC 4 and would like to work with asp.net mvc mvc 5 and 6. For this I take the following actions:
1) uninstall Visual Studio 2012 exp
2) uninstall visual studio 2013 exp
3) Install Visual Studio 2015 exp
I ask gentlemen, is there any risk I lose or damage the asp.net mvc 4 that is installed on my machine and can not run my projects in this version?

Make sure you do not uninstall Visual Studio 2012! It has the correct templates for creating MVC 4 projects. I don't think you can create these with 2015. It is better to leave ALL old versions of Visual studio installed. They do not interfere with the newer
versions. Once you create your MVC 4 project in Visual Studio 2012 you can open and open it in VS 2015 with no problems. Visual Studio now allows you to target most all versions of .NET framework, but templates for creating MVC projects are limited to the
newest version and Microsoft is constantly changing them.
Also be sure to disable "Enable Browser Link" if you plan to use the Visual Studio debugger. This is the worst OS mangler since Fast Find.

Thank you for your feedback Dan W Randolph.
I was very worried about it, I have some projects in Asp.net MVC 4, so I was afraid to lose them after uninstall VS 2012 and VS 2013.
Thanks again for your suggestions.
