Visualize version compatiblity issues?

To stay compatible with my various clients, I have all 64-bit releases of SolidWorks (2014 to 2018) installed on my PC.

That means I also now have 3 releases of Visualize installed (2016 to 2018). As a result I now have 3 different Visualize Content folders.


Because Visualize does not change file formats with each release, I don't think there is any need to keep the older Visualize Content folders?

I can just copy older projects into the 2018 folder, plus any unique appearances?

Then can I uninstall Visualize 2016 & 2017?


I know there is a 2018 feature to better link to SW but only  for SW2018. Not a problem for me because if I was rendering for a client with an older SW release, I would just copy his part/assembly files to a new 2018 CAD folder.
