Installshield 2015 and InstallShield 2008 on 1 system.

I'm currently developing with InstallShield 2008 Premier(rather old, I know) and we're thinking about taking the move to Installshield 2015 Premier.

I was wondering if:
a. I can run both Installshield versions next to each other on the same development system? Without having to fear that it overwrites some files in a system folder somewhere so that it breaks the working of the older Installshield? I maintain > 10 different installer projects and it would be nice that I can convert them step by step without the pressure to delay our release schedule.
b. I have currently a license for Installshield 2008. When I buy Installshield 2015, I get a license for Installshield 2015 and the one from IS2008 keeps active I suppose?
c. We have 3 or 4 build systems with an instance of the IS 2008 standalone builder running. The same question like point a: can I install the IS 2015 standalone builder next to the IS 2008 standalone builder without the fear that they break something from each other?

Thanks!

Re: Installshield 2015 and InstallShield 2008 on 1 system.

InstallShield supports side-by-side installations of its major versions, so that should be fine.

By contrast, service packs are in-place updates so you cannot have both RTM and SP1 of a single major release without using multiple machines (or VMs).

InstallShield 2010 and InstallShield 2015 are separate major versions, so yes. Both can be installed on the same machine.
