VW2018 & VW2019 on the same High Sierra Mac Computer?

Recommended Posts

Is anyone running VW2018 & VW2019 on the same High Sierra Mac computer? Any issues to note?

Some of our staff want this dual install whilst they learn VW2019. I advised them to be careful with file versioning in relation to colleagues only running VW2018. 

Other than that, I see no reason to oppose this idea.

No problem,

I always run the most current and the last version beside each other

in peace and harmony. You can even run them at the same time.

There should be no issue with having both on the same machines. It should be ensured that the last 6 of the serial numbers on each machine used for 2018 correspond to the last 6 used on those machines for 2019, so you don't get multiple machines thinking the same license is in use because a different version of the same license is running somewhere else.

Thanks Jim! Our supplier say we can have an extra set of license for VW2019 and run them parallel with VW2018 on our internal license server, for 3 months FOC.
