install watchout 5 and 6 on the same computer


Recommended Posts

It used to be possible to run different versions on the production computer.

If I remember right, the trick was to first install e.g. Watchout 5 in C:/watchout5  . Then test that this is working.

Now ZIP the folder C:/watchout5 and delete the unzipped files to prevent that the installer finds the previous installation.

Next, install Watchout 6 into C:/watchout6.

Last step would be to unzip the Watchout 5 installation again and to place two links to your desktop pointing to the two WATCHMAKER.exe files in the two folders.

But remember to open the watch file within the sw and not by double click on it.
