Fortress and Fortress 2 Client Installation

Post by neversaid » Mon Sep 21, 2009 6:07 am

Hi all,
we're using Fortress (1.x) on one Server (external Customer) and Fortress 2 for the internal Projects.
Is it possible to install the Fortress 2 and Fortress 1 Client on the same Machine?

This isn't a supported configuration, but we've had some customers who needed to do that.

If you integrated with Visual Studio, only the last one installed gets the integration. If you have to have both with Visual Studio, then you will want to try a registry switcher to quickly flip the registry settings. One customer posted a link to what they use in this thread:

Instructions for installing are posted here: Installing multiple versions of the Vault Client.

Essentially, you will install the older version of Fortress, then pick up the folder it installed to and move it to a different location, then install the second version.
