Installing Wildfire 4 along side Wildfire 2

Does anyone know if it's possible to have both wildfire 4 and wildfire 2 installed on the same PC? We're upgrading to wildfire 4 and would like to leave wildfire 2 installed until the engineers are happy with wildfire 4.

Yes, for sure, we always keep the previous install of WF on our machine when upgrading to the next version. Just make a new folder in 'PTC' called WF4 or whatever, and install there.

If using Windchill read TPI 141287 from PTC.

I can't speak to Intralink/Windchill issues, but for stand alone Pro|E you simply need to install in different folders. I think the installer defaults to an upgrade install in the same folder, but you can override that. I've got WF1, WF2, WF3 & WF4 on my machine now (along with SW 2006, 2007 & 2008) so I can use whatever the client requires.

You can install different builds/versions in separate directories. For testing, you may want to set different locations for cache and startup files. Here is a simple Batch file for WF4. :: File to set environment variables and startup Wildfire 4 @echo off echo. SET PTC_WF_ROOT=D:\pro_startupdir\wf4_startdir SET PTC_WF_CACHE=D:\pro_startupdir\wf4_startdir\cache cd %PTC_WF_ROOT% :: SET PRODIR=C:\PTC\proewildfire4.0-M060 SET PROWORK_DIR=D:\ptc\prowork SET PROWT_THREADS=10 SET PRO_DIRECTORY=C:\PTC\proewildfire4.0-M060 echo. echo PTC_WF_ROOT=%PTC_WF_ROOT% echo PTC_WF_CACHE=%PTC_WF_CACHE% echo. C:\PTC\proewildfire4.0-M060\bin\proe.exe echo.
