Hi all,
Until today I have worked with codesys 3.5.10 and now i want to install 3.5.12.
I use Exor hmi ex707 or ex710 with integrated codesys.
At the last release of runtime they went from version 3.5.10 to the version 3.5.12.
I need to have both versions installed because I need to open the old programs and also the new ones.
I tried to install version 12 on the same computer (a virtual machine with win10) and during installation I indicated a new folder.

Now when I launch version 10 and open an old project, the warning window appears that there are new versions in the libraries.
I press the cancel button and I don't update.
Then when I compile the project errors appear due to libraries that appear to be duplicates.


What can I do to solve the problem?
And above all, I need the old file not changed.
I need to be able to go online with the plc to run a diagnosis, without having to run a new downolad.
If someone has installed two versions and has a solution, every suggestion is greatly appreciated, thanks.

Yes, the advanced users works well.
just a few clarifications:
after installing the second version, I could not move the Codesys folder from ProgramData.
Windows 10 said it was in use.
I solved by terminating the Gateway service.
In the end I got two installations with separate repositories.

Starting Codesys (v10 or v12), the codesys folder is create again automatically in ProgramData
with this content:
"C:\ProgramData\CODESYS\Temporary Files"

As you can see, there is a part of the content that I tried to separate :
"C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\CANopen Profiles"
"C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\CODESYSControlSoftMotionWinV3"
"C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\CODESYSControlWinV3"
"C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\CODESYSGatewayV3"
"C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\CODESYSHMIWinV3"
"C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\CODESYSRemoteTargetVisualization"
"C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\Devices"
"C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\J1939 Databases"
"C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\LibDoc"
"C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\Licenses"
"C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\Managed Libraries"
"C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\Simulation"
"C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\SimulationRts"
"C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\Temporary Files"

"C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\Visual Elements"
"C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\Visualization Styles"
"C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\CODESYS.opt"
"C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\CODESYSProjectDefaults.opt"
"C:\Program Files (x86)\3S CODESYS 3_5_12\ProgramData\CODESYS\CoDeSysUser.opt"

In fact, starting the simulation in codesys, the files are in:

But for me the important thing is that it has separated the library folders.

Many thanks for the tip, have a nice day.
