MS Visual Studio NET Versions
Posted on 2014-07-30
Hopefully this will be a simple question:
I am currently using VB.NET 2010 as my development platform. I have several projects deployed with existing clients and I installed a licensed copy of VS 2010 on their computers. Now it seems that 2013 is the latest version and I need to develop software for new clients and install a copy of visual studio on their computers as well.
If I develop in VS 2010 and run on VS 2013 I assume that will not be a problem.
However, if I make changes to the code using the 2013 version will I still be able to open and edit the code in VS 2010.
The bottom line is: I need to provide my clients with a copy of the development language and either modify their program (when necessary) at their site or modify it at my office. Is there a problem supporting my different clients who have 2010 and 2013 if I stay with 2010 on my personal computer or do I need to purchase the latest version (2013) for myself in order for my new programs to work on their VS 2013 computers?
