    Has anyone gotten Visual Studios 2005 to work on Windows 7?

    This article seems to suggest it can be done but Windows 7 complains when installing the patches.

    I need to support some old software so I need to have 2005 for a while. I plan to upgrade to 2010.


    I'll probably setup a dual boot for XP but it would be nice to get it working in Windows 7.

    Why not just download a free version of express versions C++, C# or vb ?
