Installation problem

Hi,
I have Solid Edge ST3 MP3 in french installed on XP SP3. I wanted to try SE 2D ST3 Free for fun so I downloaded the french version but, the installation wizard tells me that a version of Solid Edge is already installed and that I need to un-install it before continuing the installlation of SE 2D ST3 Free. Now I obviously don't want to un-install SE ST3 to get 2D Free, but is it necessary? If not how can I fix the problem.

Thank you

-Max

Re: Installation problem

This is true.
You cannot have Solid Edge and Solid Edge 2D Drafting loaded at the same
time.
Both softwares use the same registry entries.
