RAD7 and RAD6 - can they coexist?

Hi, everyone,

Does anyone know if one I can have RAD7 and RAD6 on the same machine? I'm currently using RAD6 + IBM Portal 5.1 Test Environment and I have to switch to RAD7 + IBM Portal 6.0 Test Environment.

I'd like to keep the 2 things separated.

Does anyone know if the 2 test+ide environments can coexist?

Yes, I have both installed and have switched back and forth.

Although I'm not willing to attempt to run them both at the same time.

RAD 6 and RAD 7 can co-exist on the same system.

I had a bad experience when I accidently opened a workspace configured in RAD 7 in RAD 6. It messed up some project files.

For running servers on both RAD 6 and 7 together, you may need to iron out port dependencies. I had different http ports configured for RAD 6 and RAD 7. Still it did not work for me, cause it uses few other ports for communication during publish.

If you have a work around using which you got both running together please let me know.

Indeed, they can co-exist.

And if you play with the various server ports, you can run the test server in both environments. Of course, few computers have enough memory to do so.
