    .net 1.1 and .net 2 or .net 3

    can you run multiple websites on IIS 6 that one would be .net 1.1 and the other .net 2 or .net 3?

    Thanks

    Yes.

    Well, I don't know about .net 3, but I'd presume so - you can certainly run 1.1. and .2 side by side:- in IIS you just set the 'asp.net' version on the 'asp.net' tab of the properties of that particular application to be whichever version you require.

    Yes, you can use multiple versions simultaneously in IIS.

    There is one key trick here--you need to have different versions of .NET in a different application pool or stuff breaks.

    Note that .NET 3.0 does not really have an ASP.NET version attached; it is a marketing label attached to some neat stuff that runs on top of ASP.NET 2.0.

    Not really following the question here? But yes, if I was looking at buying Visual Studio, I would either get software assurance, MSDN or wait until 2008 hits the streets at this time.

    That answers my question. However i am in a position where we will be beginning this new project very soon. Is it advisable to download the VS08 Beta and begin the project. Then make the purchase when it is made available, or will i run into issues doing it this way?

    For web development, the big advantages you get from VS 2008 is javascript intellisense and LINQ. If those improvements will save you a lot of time, go with VS2008, otherwise, don't use beta software, go with VS2005.

    Biggest question to ask is "how soon will your hosting environment support .NET 3.5?"

    Now, if it will sooner rather than later, then going 2008 might make sense. If not, you will have to make sure to keep working at a .NET 2.0 level in your application, which means no LINQ and no ListView. But the CSS support and Javascript debugging will still be there.

    I would look at your development cycle to determine whether you should go with 05 or 08. I'd feel kind of weird to release a product until the foundation it was built on was RTM.

    My suggestion would be to use the Express versions of V@2008 and code in ASP.Net 2.0. 3.5 is in beta2 and as was already said before it proably will be a while before hosts support 3.5
