Yes or No - Install INV 2013 along side 2012

Please, this should be a yes or no question:
Can I install standalone Autodesk Product Design Suite 2013 alongside exisitng Autodesk Product Design 2012 and then uninstall 2012 Suite without damaging new 2013 install?  Want to do this so 2013 inherits settings, projects, mapped folders, etc from 2012 before doing 2012 unistall. Will the Windows Control Panel uninstaller damage 2013 install when uninstalling 2012 or is there another way of cleanly doing uninstall, or must I first uninstall 2012 and recreate environment manually after 2013 install to be safe??

Win 7 64 bit

Thanks

Yikes - you guys are quick!!

That's sort of what I wanted to hear - use the Autodesk uninstaller instead of Control Panle uninstaller.

Thanks much!

the uninstall tool is better because you can uninstall the whole suite at one time instead of uninstalling one by one through windows control panel
