Can I have Solid Works 2010 and Solid Works 2009 installed together in computer?
Thanks in advance
Multiple versions of SolidWorks can be run at the same time on one
computer. Unless the old version is needed, it is best to only have the
current version on the computer. Do not run multiple services packs on the same computer. This is a bad practice. Create
names for the SolidWorks installation directories that are based on the
version and service pack for SolidWorks. For example, SolidWorks 2007
SP1.0 would have an installation directory name of SolidWorks2007 for
each version. To run multiple service packs on the same machine, create
installation directories with the service pack appended to the
directory name, like SolidWorks2007-1-0. Set a common
files location based on version and also decide whether to share the
data with others on a network drive. The SolidWorks Toolbox and Hole
Wizard database is by default stored in the C:\Program Files\Common
Files\SolidWorks Data directory. To run multiple versions on the same
computer, make sure this directory has been named to the desired
version of SolidWorks (i.e., SolidWorks Data06). To update this
directory, copy the data to the new version (i.e., SolidWorks Data09)
and point to the directory during the update. SolidWorks will update
the database during the update.
