EAP and normal version together?

Hi,

is it possible to use the normal and the EAP version parallel on an windows PC?

When I try to install the EAP the installer wants to delete my normal version.
So I abort that installation procedure.

Hi there,

Yes -- it's possible -- IDE settings are stored in different folders (each version has it's own folder for that).

But projects settings are stored in the same location (.idea subfolder in your project root). There could be the difference between IDE versions (the way how they store project settings), so it's better to make a back up of them if you want to go back to a previous version later without possible reconfiguration of some parts.

When I try to install the EAP the installer wants to delete my normal version.

No -- it does not want to delete. It only offers you to do that if you have such desire -- nothing more (just do not check the check box).
