Steve already answered this basically. It is well possible to
have multiple VS versions installed at the same time. Before
compiling you just need to run the right environment setup batch file
to prepare everything.

I was just referring to *preview* versions of VS. If you use
one of those, chances are that you'll have a hard time upgrading
to the final version of VS. My recommendation is not to use preview
versions on systems that you cannot easily revert to a state
before the preview install.
