Is Service Pack 2 also binary incompatible, or only Extension?
Thanks.

Cyrille Fauvel

The Extension release and the Service Pack are incompatible. The Service Pack 2 applies to Maya 2013 only and does not contain the Extension API/features. However, it contains almost the same list of bugfixes.
What is important to note for future is that there might be a Service Pack 3 or another Hotfix later in the year. This Service Pack or Hotfix would be release in 2 versions - one for 2013 and one for the 2013 Extension.

Gabriel Gazzan

Very clear answer. Thanks!

Federico

Can 2013.5 and 2013 be installed side by side in the same computer?

Cyrille Fauvel

Hi Frederico

Absolutely, they can run side by side

Federico

Thanks - could you explain how can I do that? i.e., how can I install 2013.5 as a standalone and not as a patch on 2013?

Cyrille Fauvel

Hi Federico

just run the Maya Extension release installer, it will install in a different directory. Note that the Extension release is not the same as the Service Pack Release. So if you have the installer complaining, you certainly not have the Extension installer but teh Service Pack installer.
