multipple versions of Avant browser?

Post by Aussie » Mon Jan 02, 2012 10:10 pm

Is it possible to run two different versions of Avant Browser for testing purposes without conflicts? If I change the install folder name during installation can I run one or the other?
I am using the version 11.7.46 because it is the only only that allows me to run My Favorites Home Page, an old script page written by Robert Perry a few years ago. Newer versions of Avant and IE will not run it so I would like to try the newest version (2012) to check it but I do not want to mess my settings. What do you suggest?

Thanks,

Aussie

Download an USB version, then you can keep many versions of Avant browser in your PC.

The above one only works for build versions, if you want to try the alpha or beta version ,then use the following one:
You can install the 2012 version in a different folder.But before you doing that, please move the Avant profiles folder of 11.7.46 to it's installation directory. After you installed 2012 version, also move the Avant profiles of 2012 to its installation directory, then the setting of two versions will not mess up.

Thanks for the suggestions. I think that the installation should give us an option to select the install folder and where the profiles should "live". It would make life easier. Anyway, thanks again.

Cheers!
