Dual Installation and Switching Between Eos v3 and Earlier Versions

Can you have Eos v2 and Eos v3 installed at the same time?

It is possible to have a single version of Eos v2 and Eos v3.x installed on your console or ETCnomad at the same.  There are some caveats.   Windows 7 consoles allow you to switch between which version the console is running in the shell.  ETCnomad will allow you to have both programs installed on the same machine

  • Not all consoles and PCs can run Eos v3.  For consoles, the background OS cannot be XPe. 
  • Not all consoles and PCs can run Eos v2.9.x or lower. For consoles, the background OS cannot be Windows 10.
  • If you aren't sure if your console is XPe, Windows 7, or Windows 10 please see  What version of Windows is my console running?
  • It is recommended that the version 2 you have installed be v2.9.x or higher.  If you are running an older version of Eos v2 on your console then switching back to v3 will require the installation of v2.9.x.

How do I switch back and forth on my console?

The Eos Family Manual gives a detailed description of how to switch back and forth here.   This is part of the section of the manual on the Eos Configuration Utlity and is called "Switching Between Console Versions"

What about on ETCnomad?

Simply start the program you wish to run, either Eos Family or Eos Family v3.
