Can I have 2 separate versions of PowerSDR on my computer?

I am currently using PowerSDR v 2.4.4 built by SV1EIA with my Softrock Ensemble RXTX. It has gotten me started in SDR, I'm really liking it, and I'm ready to move up. I just purchased a Flex-3000 and will be downloading a current version of PowerSDR for that radio. Can two versions of PSDR co-exist without problems? Can I download a newer version without changing/updating the previous version? Thanks for the advise.

    Yes, you can run multiple instances of FlexRadio Systems PowerSDR and connect to two different FLEX software defined radios as long as both radios are not connected to the PC via a Firewire connection.  This is described in the PowerSDR Release Notes if you need additional information.

    And Yes, you can run two different version of FlexRadio Systems PowerSDR at the same time as they are installed independently of one another.
