When using the PyMOL launch icons, it is only possible to have one active version installed (registered) under Windows.
However, you can (1) copy and rename the Program Files \ DeLano Scientific \ PyMOL folder from a correctly installed version, then (2) edit the launch.bat file inside the copied folder to point PYMOL_PATH at the copied location, and then (3) use that launch.bat to launch that copy even after removing or updating the main installed version.
In such a situation, you can have one registered version and then any number of unregistered copies sitting in adjacent folders, each launchable with their own launch.bat script.
If you've got a mess at present, use the Control Panel to uninstall any registered copies, then delete (or rename) the Program Files \ DeLano Scientific \ PyMOL folder (if present) and then reinstall a fresh copy of the version you wish to run.

Hi again folks,
Having tried to install both versions on my PC, then delete versions I can now only start pymol using the pymol.exe and any other automatic links bring the error:
Error: Pymol failed to launch "Aw Shucks"
I can get around this but it would be nice to restore to the original status quo.
Thanks for any help
