EAP side-by-side with released IDEA?


Before I screw something up - can I install EAP 16 side-by-side with a 15?  The installer has an unchecked check-box next to the installed 15.0.3 - does that mean if I don't select it my 15.0.3 will remain (and work)?

Thanks! -- David


Yes, you can use them side by side. Major versions do not share anything as they are using different folders for config/system/plugins, see https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/articles/206544519 .

When starting IDEA 16 EAP you can import your IDEA 15 settings so that you don't have to start configuring it from scratch.
