Version Compatibility?

Hello CD genius friends (I hope).

I'm doing design work for a couple of CD customers, and both have downloaded the beta. I'm not on the beta.  Do I have to upgrade to be able to read their CD files? 

Should that make any difference with the file if one of us is on the enterprise version and the other is not?  I hope the answer is no, but if it is yes, then the question is ... can I have two versions of CD installed?

Yes, you have to upgrade. 2.0 can read 1.0 files, and it converts them to 2.0 immediately. But 1.0 can't read 2.0 files.

Pro/Home/Starter all use the same file format. The starter edition can even open files with too many articles, it just won't publish them.

Thanks for the quick reply! You must type as fast as I do!

So can I install two versions on my machine?
