can gw12 and gw7 clienst both exist on same workstation

I've got two servers running different gw versions. Ver 6.x and 2012. One workstation needs to access both. Is there a switch in client install for gw2012 client that will not overwrite the old client version. I tried changing the gw12 client install subdir but after copying files to a different subdir the install program still deleted the older gw client program.

thanks jb

    You can't have two different GW clients installed on the same PC. A
    copule of options.

    - Use the older GW client to access both servers, knowing that when
    connecting to GW2012 you won't get the latest features.

    - Use ZENworks Application Virtualization to run a virtualized instance
    of the GW2012 client while leaving the older client version installed
    locally. This will allow both clients to run simultaneously on the
    same PC since only one is physically installed.
