Would you recommend that I uninstall version 3.1.454 before installing 2009 or can they run concurrently? Thanks.

Technically they should co-exist, but some file
type associations will get reset each time you run one or the other. Is there a specific reason you need to keep 3.1 around?

Thanks for responding. I may keep the old version around for reference, as I transition to using 2009. Even though I used the word concurrently in my original post, I didn't mean that I imply that I will run them at the same time. A better choice of words would have been co-exist, which you used. Any other installation or initial configuration tips you might have would be appreciated.

The installation paths are different so I don't expect you'll have any problems. What I'm not sure of is which version will be used for file associations. But you can always download the free File Types tool from http://www.primaltools.com/downloads/communitytools/ and configure as you want.
