Can Mindjet 14 co-exist with Mindjet 15 64Bit

Hi,

Bought Mindjet 14 a week ago and installed it and just received Mindjet 15.  I have Office 64-Bit installed and am wondering whether Mindjet 15 64-Bit can co-exist with Mindjet 14 or should I uninstall Mindjet 14 before installing Mindjet 15?

Thanks for your response.

Jack,

I currently have MindManager 14  and 15 side by side on both a 32 bit and 64 bit system.
I have experienced an issue with MindManager 15 "hanging" after clicking "continue" on the splash screen containing the welcome/getting started video but I do not think this is related to the MindManager 14 install at this moment.
The only thing you may need to do is to make sure that MindManager 15 is the default application for opening MindManager file types, otherwise you may find linked maps and exports open in the MindManager 14 version.
You can change that simply right clicking on any .mmap file and changing the "opens with" options or through the Control Panel under Default Programs.
I feel obliged to point out that under the terms of the Technology Guarantee and MindManager Plus policies when you install the latest version you technically relinquish your rights to use the previous version unless you have an additional license.

Yes I too have had "hanging" at start screen. This is being investigated but Minjet seem  unable to replicate it. I have replicated on 3 different computers. If you wait until the video link settles down and is full populated in the window before pressing "continue" all works well. I notice that on a wired network to problem appear less often. On a VPN connection the problem is more obvious.

Just tested this without an internet connection and got fast, clean start 20 times in a row so it looks related to either the video on the welcome screen (which incidentally gets replaced with a static image when your not connected) or some other web service MindManager is trying to reach.
If you insert a license key, the welcome screen no longer displays and the issue disappears.

I have Installed 15 32 alongside 14 32 (because the installation doesn't ask you to uninstall). 14 remained associated with .mmap files and both 14 and 15 toolbar buttons are present in Office 2013 32. Both versions are working although I had to restart 15 after it crashed 2 or 3 times but now it's settled down.

Thanks for both your replies.  I may just uninstall 14.  It's not like I've created anything significant in it.  Just thinking, initially it might be more stable than a new release.

Jack,

I'm sure that keeping MM14 in place for a few days/weeks until you're satisfied that MM15 "fits the bill" should be fine.
