Can I install new build alongside existing Audacity?

Probably a stupid question, but I have an existing Audacity running on my Mac - and I’m using it in production.

I have just built both Release and Debug versions, apparently successfully. But … can I install either of the two while the existing production version is on this system? Or are they mutually exclusive? One day I’ll buy a development machine…


In the context of running

xcodebuild -configuration Release install

which I assume you mean, you have “installed” it to /tmp/Audacity.dst/.

You can move it to /Applications if you wish providing its folder has a different name to that containing your production version.

You can’t run both or all three at the same time, unless you create a “Portable Settings” folder in at least two of the folders containing Audacity.
