I have developed a web client application with the 1.1 version (June 2007) of WCSF in Visual Studio 2005 but I want to upgrade to Visual Studio 2008 and WCSF 2.0. What is the recomended way for doing this?

Can these versions be installed side-by-side on my computer? I guess GAX 1.4 is backward compatible so I can still use Visual Studio 2005 and WCSF June 2007 with GAX 1.4?

What is needed to convert my old WCSF project over to the 2.0 version? Step-by-step please... ;-)

Here is the link of how to upgrade. Let us know if this helps. This section refers you to:

Note: For instructions on how to enable existing Web client solutions created with the previous releases see Upgrading from Previous Releases in the documentation. You will find the topic under the Inspecting the Software Factory Assets\Application Blocks\Composite Web Application Block.

Yes. GAX and GAT 1.4 will work with previous versions of WCSF.
