    I'm trying to troubleshoot something and was wondering if you can run Flexi 8.6 and Flexi 10.5 on the same computer? They both use the same key and I would use only one version at a time. I'm just trying to compare something between the two.

    I didn't know if the 8.6 would rewrite files in the windows directory that may mess with ver 10.5?

    Thanks for any insight you may have.

    I think I was doing that for a while when I first installed ver 10. Don't remember any issues.

    I know that during the installation it gives the option of installing to a different directory than a current installation, so I'm thinkng it must be possible. May give it a try.

    I ran 10 and 10.5 on the same system at the same time for a day before my computer took a nose dive. I'm pretty sure it can be done
