Installation of SQL server Denali (2011) CTP upgrades the BIDS 2008. Is there any way possible that this does not happens as this I am using BIDS 2008 for creating SSIS packages for SQL server 2008 .

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
You really really don't want to be installing a CTP release on a machine/server that you use for any other purpose, for the simple reason alone that it is a CTP release, unless of course you are happy with the fact that you may need to rebuild the machine at some point.
My advice, get either a dedicated server for testing Denali or setup a Virtual Machine to do so.
