Hey Guys.

 

So I have version 7.xx with tons of stuff for it, I just installed it and go it back up and going, and it starts up 3 times faster than version 11 that I currently like to run.

 

I have backup directories of both versions, where I copied the program files E-sword directory and the documents E-sword directory.

 

I have tried swapping out the directories but if I have version 11 installed and try swapping the installer for version 11 comes up and fixes my version 7 to version 11.

 

is there a way that I can run both without having to uninstall/reinstall to get either to work right?

 

I have things in each one that the other does not have, and I like both both, I am a collector, when E-sword 7 was still current I collected most everything I could for it, I have done the same for 9xx

Yes you can have multiple installations of e-Sword on a windows PC by creating separate users for each installation. The installations can be multiple copies of the same version or installations of different versions as you want to do. 

There is an excellent YouTube tutorial video that show the steps need to accomplish multiple installations of e-Sword on a windows PC:
