Install several versions of After Effects in same major version

Hi,

 

I would like to setup a rendering server, ideally with several After-Effects versions in the same major.

 

It is currently possible to install from Creative Cloud Desktop 1 version per major (I currently have 24.1, 23.6.2, 22.1.1, 18.4.1).

 

In the major 23, there are the versions 23.0, 23.1, 23.2, 23.2.1, 23.3, 23.4, 23.5, 23.6 and 23.6.2 .

From the Creative Cloud Desktop, I get a message than installing a second version of the 23 major will uninstall the previous installed version, so I can't have 23.0 and 23.6.2 installed at the same time.

 

Is there a way to install several versions in the same major version ? I would like to install 23.0, 23.1, 23.2 and 23.6.2 for example on the same computer/server.

 

Secondly, since we cannot download the previous versions of After-Effects (prior to the previous major), is it possible to download the current installers officially from adobe (for 23.0, 23.1, 23.2 etc..) so that we could still install them later if we store them ?

 

Best regards

No, no and no. The mighty gods of Adobe don't want you to download old versions, be that minor and major and the internal install system will prevent it. Unless you can get them from other sources and manipulate the install manifests, minor versions wouldn't install separately, anyway. And of course once there's a new version, older versions drop out of support and nobody will give you any guarantees that anything keeps working, especially components shared with other CC programs of for that mat
