I've just got a new computer running windows 7, my old machine was running XP. I've installed VS2005 without any problems, guess I should upgrade to 2010 at some point.
The problem I have is when I am running my code to debug it on my old machine if I stop the code with a break point I could edit the code and then continue running to code, on my new machine every time I try to edit the code it comes up with a message at the bottom of the screen saying "Cannot currently modify this text in the editor. It is in read-only" I have to press the stop button and then run the code again. Does anyone else have this problem and is there a way round this?

First ensure you have installed these:
To use Visual Studio 2005 on Windows 7 you will need to install both Visual Studio 2005 Service Pack 1 and the Visual Studio 2005 Service Pack 1 Update for Windows Vista.
Quoted from Visual Studio on Windows Vista and Windows 7
Apart from that I could not see Edit and Continue on the issues lists.
