It is not possible. The supporting libraries conflict, and only support one version at a time. The best you can do would be to set up a virtual machine OS within the other, or a parallel boot of two separate OS installs.

Well, it is possible actually, but just as jblaipdx describes you have to set up a virtual machine or HD partition to run it. Parallels does this quite nicely and can run many virtual machines on a single OS install as I understand it.

If you have windows 7 you can install http://www.microsoft...c/download.aspx xp mode. Then install arcgis 10 in windows 7, open up the virtual xp machine and install 9.3...Can't guarantee this will work, and I'll let you decide the legalities about your license situation.

Cheers,
David

I think ArcGIS 9.3 will not work in a virtual machine, because a virtual machine cannot use the full system resource (from my experience) while the host system can do it.

It can work. I run a VMware virtual machine on my poor 5 year old laptop, and one of the reasons is that I can have two versions of ArcGIS (currently 10.0SP2 on the host and 10.1Beta1 in the vm). However in the past I've mixed 9.3.1 and 10 in that way. If you do that, I probably recommend putting 10 in the vm and 9.3 on the host, as 9.3 licensing is less vm-aware.

Clearly you will lose some processing power by the virtualisation layer, but with current VM technology and a fairly modern PC it's not usually a big problem.

ArcGIS 9.3 (or 9.3.1) can work on a virtual machine like Virtual PC for example (with XP Mode for me) but:

- you have to install first your ArcGIS installation files on your virtual machine in order to launch your installation (from your virtual machine so)
- you must have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate
