Double install

Installed the 64 bit version of TC on my machine since I run 64 bit Windows 10, and figured that would be fastest.  But then one day I had use for the trace function that is only available in the 32 bit version and wondered if installing both versions for the same user on the same machine would cause any conflicts or overwriting?  Has anybody done this?

As far as I know, it is perfectly acceptable to install both the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions on the same machine.

If using TurboCAD 2016, they are installed at:
64-bit: C:\Program Files\IMSIDesign\TCWP2016
32-bit: C:\Program Files (x86)\IMSIDesign\TCWP2016

Your application data files, such as the "Built-In" folder, Materials, etc. will be at:
64-bit: C:\Users\your user name\AppData\Roaming\IMSIDesign\TurboCAD 2016\Professional x64
32-bit: C:\Users\your user name\AppData\Roaming\IMSIDesign\TurboCAD 2016\Professional

I have both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions installed, but I always install the 64-bit version last so that it will be the default.
