Im planning to upgrade to 2012. Will I lose my 2010 projects after installing or would this install independent to previous versions. Will it overwrite the app  directory?
Will I upgrade my projects to this version?
What are the steps I need to do and watch for? thanks

They can all be installed side by side, no problem.

Both Visual Studio 2010 and 2012 can co-exist without problems, as in previous versions of Visual Studio.
If you try to open a solution with 2012, you will be asked to upgrade your solution, which is a safe operation. if you don't want that, just create a copy of your entire solution folder.

Not tried myself but I have heard that VS2012 and VS2010 use same solution file so you can continue to open the solution in both versions without changes.

I have both on my PC (because Crystal Reports for VS2010 is not working in VS2012) and I don't have any issues.
