Visual Studio 2005 Setup - on Windows SBS 2008 or Windows 7?

I have a website with .aspx pages I created in VS.NET 2003.  I have a copy of VS 2005 PRO that I tried to install on SBS 2008 but at the end of the install said that there were known compatibility issues with the SBS2008 operating system.  The website currently resides on the SBS2008 Server machine.

I wanted to install it on the server because VS.NET 2003 was originally installed on a SBS2003 box and ran fine - that server is no longer active as we have upgraded.

I can also install VS2005 on my Windows 7 client.

THIS IS WHAT I HAVE TO DO:

I have to take all my existing html pages and aspx pages from our existing corporate website and create a new solution file on VS 2005.

I really need some help with the best installation choice SBS2008 64 BIT vs Win7 64 BIT, and help to recreate the solution in VS 2005.

Any suggestions?

Servers are usually not considered the best platform to install client software such as VS and Office. I would suggest Windows 7. Not sure about VS2005 on Windows 7 though I have VS2008, VS2010 and VS2013 working fine on Windows 7.

Code?

Lets talk a bit about VS2008 or 2010

Since I have aspx files created in visualstudio.net 2003 running on asp.net 1.1 -
(i no longer have solution and project files)

How difficult would it be to (and would you recommend) installing VS208 and creating new project/solution files on vs2008?

I don't see much problem with VS2008 but you would have to give it a try to be sure.
