9. Parallel installations
If you would like to install multiple instances of Intrexx, please
consider the following points:
Use a different installation directory.
Otherwise the new setup will replace the existing Intrexx installation.
Use a different portal database.
It is especially important for test and development systems
that you do not use the same database as the productive system.
Intrexx can be uninstalled on Windows systems from the system settings (Programs and Functions). On Linux systems, Intrexx will be uninstalled with uninstall.sh. On Windows systems, the package Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable will be installed during the installation process of Intrexx as well.
