Hi

I have an Excel 2007 Add-in that I developed in Visual Studio 2010.
I am installing the trial version of Visual Studio 2013 and wanted to know
whether I can uninstall Visual Studio 2010. In other words will
Visual Studio 2013 be okay to develop my Excel 2007 Add-in and will this
add in run in Office 2010 and 2013 or should I keep Visual Studio 2010 and
rather develop in that?

Hi murbro;

You state, "I am installing the trial version of Visual Studio 2013 and wanted to know
whether I can uninstall Visual Studio 2010", I would wait until you have made the purchase of Visual Studio 2013 before deleting Visual Studio 2010. That said Visual Studio 2013 can target other .Net Framework all the way back to 2.0 so if you built an application using 3.5 and wanted to continue using 3.5 to make modifications that application that is not a problem. If you wanted to create a new application using .Net Framework 3.0 using Visual Studio 2013 when you create the new project  in the New Project dialog box just change the .Net Framework to 3.0 in the combo box at the top of that dialog box and that is it.
