EMEA IP Office Technical Tip
003: Managing Network Alchemy and IP Office Systems
Release Date: 9th April 2002
• Question one: Can I "INSTALL" both the Alchemy and the IP Office tools/apps on the same PC at the same time?
• Question two: Can I "RUN" both the Alchemy and IP Office tools/apps on the same PC at the same time?
In order to run multiple versions of things like the manager application ONLY requires one install and then just the .exe files of the relevant applications.
For example, you first need to get hold of the Alchemy.exe files that you want so you will need to install them on a PC. Once installed make copies of the relevant .exe files you wish to use, i.e. manager.exe, callstatus.exe, pm.exe etc (you may also want to make a copy of
the help file).
Copy these files into a different directory, for example, C:\OldAlchemyApps\.
You can now remove (uninstall) the Alchemy Admin/User installation(s).
Now you can install your IP Office Admin/User application/s as normal, once installed they will work as expected.
To run the older versions simply click the .exe files you copied over. You may want to create shortcuts for them and place them in the IP Office folder in the "start menu", make sure you give them different names, manager2p2 for example.
