Two version of codesys

    Hi all,
    Until today I have worked with codesys 3.5.10 and now i want to install 3.5.12.
    I use Exor hmi ex707 or ex710 with integrated codesys.
    At the last release of runtime they went from version 3.5.10 to the version 3.5.12.
    I need to have both versions installed because I need to open the old programs and also the new ones.
    I tried to install version 12 on the same computer (a virtual machine with win10) and during installation I indicated a new folder.

    Now when I launch version 10 and open an old project, the warning window appears that there are new versions in the libraries.
    I press the cancel button and I don't update.
    Then when I compile the project errors appear due to libraries that appear to be duplicates.


    What can I do to solve the problem?
    And above all, I need the old file not changed.
    I need to be able to go online with the plc to run a diagnosis, without having to run a new downolad.
    If someone has installed two versions and has a solution, every suggestion is greatly appreciated, thanks.

    FAQ for the dual install. Seems the advanced users bit will work for you. ... S+versions

    Yes, the advanced users works well.
    just a few clarifications:
    after installing the second version, I could not move the Codesys folder from ProgramData.
    Windows 10 said it was in use.
    I solved by terminating the Gateway service.
    In the end I got two installations with separate repositories.

    Starting Codesys (v10 or v12), the codesys folder is create again automatically in ProgramData
    with this content:
    "C:\ProgramData\CODESYS\Temporary Files"

    As you can see, there is a part of the content that I tried to separate :
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\CANopen Profiles"
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\CODESYSControlSoftMotionWinV3"
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\CODESYSControlWinV3"
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\CODESYSGatewayV3"
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\CODESYSHMIWinV3"
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\CODESYSRemoteTargetVisualization"
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\Devices"
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\J1939 Databases"
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\LibDoc"
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\Licenses"
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\Managed Libraries"
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\Simulation"
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\SimulationRts"
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\Temporary Files"

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\Visual Elements"
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\Visualization Styles"
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\CODESYS.opt"
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\CODESYSProjectDefaults.opt"
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\CoDeSysUser.opt"

    In fact, starting the simulation in codesys, the files are in:

    But for me the important thing is that it has separated the library folders.

    Many thanks for the tip, have a nice day.
