Can I install BIDS Helper for both vs.net 2005 and 2008 on the same machine?

Hi,

 

I have both VS.net 2005 and 2008.

 -  Can I install BIDS helper for both? Just checking before I mess up my computer.
 - Also, did anyone tried and has experienced any difficulties?
 - How does it differentiate and list in Add remove programs, as currently it shows "BIDS Helper 1.5.0.0" for Vs.net 2005?

You can install both with no problems. I have both on my machine. We are just an add-in for Visual Studio and each version of VS has it's own list of add-ins.

The Add/Remove programs lists the 2008 version as "BIDS Helper 2008 1.5.0.0"
