When I go to install SM 2, it wants to install in:

Can I install 2 in: D:\SeaMonkey2 and leave my older version alone? It
works so good for me and I'm seeing the thread Cannot Launch SeaMonkey 2
by David E Ross and nr's reply having the same problem and just like
David I don't use IE for anything but MS updates.

Houston, do we have a problem?

Well, most people are installing with no problem, but it is brand new software,so there are bound to be some glitches.

First of all, even if you install SM 2.0 in the default location, it will not overwrite the existing SM 1.1.x. It installs to its own location, and sets up a new profile in a new location. As long as you do not uninstall SM 1.1.x, you cn easily run the two independently of each other.

Therefore, you can select a custom install, and place the program wherever you like. If something goes wrong, you can always run SM 1.1.x, and fix the 2.0 install at your convenience. Most likely, nothing will go wrong.


Thanks Lee.

I'll try it as soon as I have a little spare time and post back as to how it went. From the screenshots SM 2 looks to be nothing more than an improvement on what I already use.
