I have a similar problem, needing to give assistance to customers with 
different Lazarus versions.
It's very annoying to maintain a program developed with an older 
version, and to make a minor correction, to be obliged to update a lot 
of other things which have been deprecated in the time between.
My solution has been to use fpcupdeluxe. It provides a fully self 
contained set of Lazarus + fpc, which doesn't clash with anything else. 
Both Lazarus config and all of fpc config are contained in a specific 
folder, Lazarus launch icons on the screen are named from the folder you 
decided to use for that version, and you can have as many as you have 
space on your disk. Currently I have 7 different Lazarus/fpc sets to 
select from, from a Lazarus 1.6 to a Lazarus 2.2.6, plus a couple of 
Lazarus Trunk (one using trunk fpc, the other using stable fpc). Give it 
a try. It will not disturb anything of your current installations.
It takes a minimum to understand how it works, but then it's a paradise.


Do not do to others as you would have them do to you.They might have different tastes.
