Is it possible to run different versions of SQL on a computer at the same time.
I installed Visual Studio 2010 so have the SQL Server 2008, which I have had problems with.
I have now downloaded SQL Server Express 2008 and plan on downloading MySQL too. Will I be able to use these or is it more prudent to uninstall the original SQL that ca,e with VS2010?
