VS 2008 and VS 2005 side-by-side with Windows Mobile 6 SDK's

Is this even a supported configuration? Right now mine's not working but I haven't given up yet.

I previously had Visual Studio 2005 installed with the Windows Mobile 6 SDK's (both professional and standard) and everything works fine there. Just yesterday installed Visual Studio 2008 and went to look at the Smart Device templates and only the Windows Mobile 5 stuff is there. No problem I figured - maybe just need to re-install the SDK's now that I have VS 2008 so they can be integrated. Did that but still just the Windows Mobile 5 and earlier stuff shows up.

While I'm continuing to research this - hopefully someone else can chime in who's got an answer...

Edit: Did an uninstall of both SDK's, rebooted and re-installed each SDK. Opened VS 2008 and there were my Windows Mobile 6 projects....closed it down and checked VS 2005 and they were there too...so:

1) If you have VS 2005 with the SDK's already installed then uninstall the SDK's, reboot and re-install..Voila - you can then access the Windows Mobile 6 stuff in each version.
