General discussion about K-Meleon.
[quote=guenter] [quote=vasa1] Please clarify if I can have 1.5.4 (which is already installed) and 1.6.0 beta 2 on the same computer and keep them separate? In other words, like two totally different browsers, profiles, etc. Is this possible if, for the 1.6.0 beta, I choose the "Full package with Installer" or should I install the "7zip portable" if I want to keep 1.5.4 and 1.6.0 beta 2 separate. (I don't want to run both of them at the same time.)[/quote] Yes this is possible as said before. I 'd choose the 7z since it has all that is needed for a portable install. Info: Portable install has its independent Profiles folder in ./Whereever on HDD or USB/K-Meleon/profiles/... Consequence: You must manually grant writing rights if You do not always use it as Administrator unless You install it in Your personal data folder or another place (removable disk, USB) where You have writing privileges automatically. Especially Vista and Windows 7 are picky about the location and the rights. If You want to use the installer package You should first create an extra profile, set each version to use its own profile and make sure that the second installed K-Meleon gets its own unique folder name e.g. ./program files K-Meleon 16.beta2/ as oposed to ./program files/K-Meleon/. 1.5.x and 1.6.x can both use each others profiles - they are compatible - but it is not recommended to do so unless You do an extra backup first. When each Version has its own Profile You can run both K-Meleons at the same time. Give the destop icon of each version it own name. Right click on it and add the parameter "-new" to its start path. if the path has spaces, it must be in "". Examples from my PC. I always give each install a unique install folder name. That prevents me from accidentally install incompatible versions on top of each other. I keep old versions installed - my hdd is big enough. :) An English test 1.6. "C:\program files\k-meleon1.6beta2.en-US\k-meleon.exe -new" My normal German Version. "C:\program files\k-meleon1.5.4de-DE\k-meleon.exe -new" Greetings from Hanover[/quote]
