I'm going to install vs 2013 ultimate in my windows 8.1. I want to remove vs 2010 from my machine as vs 2013 itself takes much space. But in my office there is vs 2010 and a project I'm developing in vs 2010.

Now my issue is I want to take the project at home and develop in vs 2013(as I'll have no other versions) and then again want to take that to office and develop in vs 2010.So will there be problem?How to make those compatible?Both for asp.net and c#.net.

Another question is can vs_2013_x_86 be installed in x_64 machine? I think it should not create any problem.

From this document:

If you use Visual Studio 2013 together with Visual Studio 2012 or Visual Studio 2010 SP1, you can create and modify projects and files in any of the three versions. You can transfer projects and files among the versions as long as you don't add features that are not supported by one of the versions.

All version of VS is x86 application and can be installed on both x86 and x64 OS.

But can I not target to vs 2010 when developing via vs 2013?
You cannot conveniently share 2010 projects on VS 2013. The projects and solutions are successfully upgraded from lower versions of VS to newer ones, but older version of OS won't "understand" newer projects and solutions. There are downgrading tools (some have been published on CodeProject), but this is not a good approach for going back and forth.

Instead, you can install additionally VS 2013 in your office. It could be community edition, which comes free of charge and roughly equivalent to VS Professional.
