I know, this question/request might sound strange but there is a reason which I explain a bit further below. So the question: can I install and run the free version of XD on a computer on which a full license of CC (including the option to install XD) is running? Or will the installer always install it with my full license?

Reason/background: I have been asked to give someone some lessons in XD and this person uses the free version. He is worried that my full version has functions that the free version doesn't have, which could affect the teaching.

Of course a related question could be: are there any other functions beside sthe sharing functions the free version is limited in (because if not the above worry might have no grounds anyway). I do not know enough about the free version (I didn't even know it exists before I had been approached for teaching) to see if there might be an issue to work parallel if one person uses the free one and one the paid one.

Thanks

Here are all the differences between the plans. Limitations are mostly about number of published prototypes and publishing libraries, not really the core app functionality.

 

You can probably register a different Adobe account with the starter version only, logout of your account with the paid plan, and log in with the starter account in the CC app, which *in theory* should allow you to use the starter version without impacting the one already installed before. But I haven't tried it and I'm not sure how that will turn out 🙂
