Netbeans 6 and 6.1 on the same machine.. Possible..?

Hi,

I am currently using Netbeans 6.0 for all my Ruby on rails Projects.

I would like to keep 6.0 and 6.1 on the same machine, since i am not
sure how safe 6.1 is when compared to 6.0

I do not want to take any chance of losing my projects.

Can any one guide me… Is it possible and How…?

Thanks

It must be good enough for them to think of it as a stable release.
Personally, I don’t see why you would want both versions on it. If
you’re
worried about the possibility of something in 6.1 being buggy, despite
the
weeks, if not months of beta testing, then don’t use it, use 6.0
instead. If
you want to contribute back to the world in a good manner, use 6.1, run
across a bug and report it. That’ll improve the product and it’ll be
better
for you and everyone involved.

Anything’s possible :slight_smile:

Create a separate branch in your revision control system for your 6.1
project work. If you’re not comfortable with installing multiple
versions
of software on whatever-your-platform, install the newer version under
VMWare or equivalent so there’s zero chance of profile conflicts, etc.

Easy-peasy :slight_smile:

Hi,

I just created 6.1 on the same machine, without any problem. Both the
versions exists without any problem.

Now… I will work with rails 2.0.2 with 6.1 and old Rails with 6.0

The New version 6.1, was installs and works without any problems.

Its faster than 6.0 and has many advantages.

I would recommend, to install 6.1 also,( Just 26 MB ) side by side to
work with rails 2.0 and 1.2 easily.

Hope this helps
