Upgrading VC from 2.2 to 4.0

I think this question may have been answered before, but I couldn't find anything whilst searching the site, so I thought I'd try the direct method.

We are beginning the process if upgrading from Visual Cobol 2.2 to 4.0.  I already have 2.2 for Visual Studio 2012 installed on my workstation.  If I install Visual Studio 2015 and Visual Cobol 4.0, will I be able to run both, or will the 4.0 install overlay 2.2.

I will still be maintaining 2.2 code while working through the upgrade process, so I was hoping I could use both on the same machine.

Thanks for the help!

Hi Mike,

The 4.0 setup will detect the 2.2 installation and will prompt you to uninstall 2.2 first.
