Multiple versions of the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine can be installed on the same computer as long as the major version number or the bitness is different. On a 64-bit system it is possible to install 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine with the same version number side-by-side.
If you install an SP1 version of the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine on a system that already has the non-SP1 version installed, the SP1 version will replace the non-SP1 version.
