How to install the same version of NetBeans several times
Current NetBeans Installer (6.X or newer) allows user to install only one instance of NetBeans IDE of particular version on the same system. It can be overridden by the following means:
- Clean installation userdir after each installation
Note that would make futher uninstallation be impossible
- Use different installation userdirs for each installation with the help of "--userdir <somedir>" command-line switch, e.g.
netbeans-6.0-windows.exe --userdir "%USERPROFILE%/.nbi" (that is the default)
netbeans-6.0-windows.exe --userdir "%USERPROFILE%/.nbi2"
netbeans-6.0-windows.exe --userdir "%USERPROFILE%/.nbi3"
Futher uninstallation is possible in that case - user should just run appropriate uninstaller or entry in Add/Remove Programs dialog (on windows)
- Use NetBeans from zip
