    Heres the problem:

    I use WMP11 and realy like it so i dont want to go back.

    But because im in the UK i wont be able to get online stores until the full release.

    I download all my music from MSN Music UK and i want to keep it that way.

    Unfortunatly there is a problem with using MSN Music through Internet Explore and the OD2 media bar which means i cant tell if a song is downloading or not.

    So the solution as i see it would be to access the online store using WMP10 but i dont wont to lose WMP11.

    So in conclusion can i have both installed?

    I'm going to guess no, but I haven't actually tried it. I know that WMP10 replaces WMP9, and I assume that WMP11 will work the same way.

    It's the conflicts in the registry that will be the problem, not the location of WMP.
