Can I install two different MagicMaX software versions in parallel?
With a workaround it is possible to install and operate two different versions of the MagicMaX software.
Uninstall the currently installed MagicMaX software
Install the 1st desired software version, e.g. Version 2.1.2
The software is installed in the path C:\Program Files(x86)\MagicMaX\ by default.
In the path C:\ProgramFiles(x86)\ create a new folder, e.g. MagicMaX_2.1.2
Open the installation path C:\ProgramFiles(x86)\MagicMaX\.
Mark all files and folders in it (ctrl + a) and copy them to the clipboard (ctrl + c).
Note: It is very important to copy the files. Do not cut the files.
Open the previously created folder in the path C:\ProgramFiles(x86)\MagicMaX_2.1.2
Paste the cached files and folders into this folder (ctrl + v)
Copy the application symbol "M" from the path C:\ProgramFiles(x86)\MagicMaX_2.1.2 and paste it on the desktop with a right click "Paste Shortcut".
Then rename the application symbol, e.g. "2.1.2_MM"
Now install the 2nd required MagicMaX software version, e.g. Version 2.2.7
The existing folder C:\ProgramFiles(x86)\MagicMaX\ is now automatically removed and version 2.2.7. is installed in the path C:\ProgramFiles(x86)\IBADosimetryGmbH\MagicMaX 2.2.7 \.
Another application symbol "M" is automatically created on the desktop.
It is also recommended to rename this application symbol, e.g. "2.2.7_MM".
With the versions given as an example, the desktop icons would look like this:
