A word of warning:

I've installed VS 2015 community a couple of months ago for trial purposes, with VS 2010 installed on the system. I had no problems, and could use either.

Now that we've decided to purchase VS 2015 Pro, I've uninstalled VS 2015. It appeared to work, although, as you noted, the uninstallation rocess took quite some time. (~10-15 minutes - I didn't really check)

Then I started VS 2010 again and loaded a solution: unfortunately, the solution wouldn't load: it claimed that a dependency, .NET 4.0 was missing! I checked program installations, but there still was a dotnet 4.0.1 installation that I could see! Even after restarting, dotnet 4.0 was still being shown. Yet VS 2010 kept complaining that it was missing: clearly, the VS 2015 uninstallation must have broken something, although it wasn't clear what.

To cut the long story short: it wasn't .NET 4.0 that was missing, it was the -NET Multi-targeting Pack - whatever that is supposed to be! I got it back by 'repairing' the VS 2010 installation.

tldr; You can install VS 2015 side by side with an earlier version, but if you ever uninstall it (or the previous version), you may need to repair the remaining installation(s).

On a sidenote: the solution in question is 100% C/C++ unmanaged code. no idea why there is any link to .Net at all...
GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
