I was using Visual Web Developer Express 2005 along with MS SQL Server Express 2005 and MS SQL Management Studio Express 2005. I have now upgraded to VWDE 2008, MS SQL Server Express 2008, and SQL Mgmt Studio 2008 Express. I uninstalled Mgmt. Studio Express 2005, however, I still have MS SQL Server 2005 installed on my PC along with VWDE 2005.
It appears that there are a few of these MS SQL 2005 Express components still installed on my PC..... any reason to keep them installed.... do I need them?
Can I uninstall MS SQL Server 2005 Express now? VWDE 2008 automatically upgrades VWDE 2005 projects when you open them----any reason to keep it installed?
Can I get some people to weigh in on this who have made the jump like I have?..... I'm concerned that running the MS SQL 2005 Express and the 2008 side-by-side is not necessary for any reason and that the SQL services ( and my CPU) is being needlessly taxed by having them both installed. Thanks.....
