I am using VC6 and VS2001 together, no problems.

Except that, if you try to run your VC6 code on a later system, you will be told that it needs to be altered first. If you allow this to happen and open your old programs on you new IDE, I don't know of any way to go back.

So until you choose to move your code over, it is certainly best to keep the projects apart. I had a fairly large project on VC6 and decided to use VS2001 on it. This was fine for a long time, but a week ago I finally ran into some problem that I could not resolve, and decided that the time had come to properly update my project. So I made sure I had an extra backup, renamed the old folder, created a new project in VS2001, and transferred all the source files over.

This tooke a morning, what with having to change a lot of include paths due to VS2001 using s different layout from VC6 for its files. But it was certainly worth it in the end to move to a newer system. Cleared out a lot of junk files in the process.

But I still use VC6. For one thing, there is inforamtion in its help system that you will not find in VS2001 and, I assume, in all later versions. And from time to time I come across code written for VC6 which I would not want modified.

I would upgrade to VS2005 if I could find a supplier. Whether I would then still use VS2001, I don't know. Buying it was a bit of a mistake, being a new IDE at the time. More mature code tends to have bugs / deficiencies that are less glaring.
