The DevPartner Studio installation program automatically detects supported releases of Visual Studio on the target system and installs the appropriate DevPartner package. If the target system contains an ambiguous combination of Visual Studio versions, the installation program will prompt the user for a choice of which one to install. Only one version of DevPartner Studio may be installed on a single system at any given time.
