For example, I have Xcode 4.4.1, and now Xcode 4.5 Golden Master (GM) version is available, but it is also called Xcode (when the
.dmg is mounted as an disc image, it shows only one app (or folder), called Xcode)
I think the way is just to double click on the
.dmg file, and then drag and drop that app into our Applications folder. But since the current Xcode and Xcode 4.5GM have the same name, can the new one just be renamed and so we can have both versions on our machine? I was worried that what if the app writes back data to the
/Applications/Xcode folder, then the GM version can write unexpected data for the 4.4.1 version.
And will it work with other software, such as Xcode 3.2, Xcode 3.3, or even different versions of Microsoft Office and Adobe Photoshop?
