MuseScore 3.4.2 and 3.5 alpha on the same computer Windows 10

• Jul 9, 2020 - 03:22

I had 3.4.2 installed first. Later I installed 3.5 alpha. 3.4.2 installed a folder in Program Files, and another folder in Documents (labeled MuseScore 3). Just like it should. 3.5 alpha installed it's own folder in Program Files (labeled alpha), but no folder in Documents.
As a result, 3.5 alpha uses the 3.4.2 folder in Documents. The combination sound font I use in 3.4.2 shows up by default in 3.5 alpha. So the two versions combine each other's fonts and scores.
My question is this. Was 3.5 alpha supposed to install it's own folder in Documents? Can I create a it's own folder and have 3.5 always point to it?

Turns out that the beta is also dependant on the 3.4.2 Documents folder. I was interested in two completely separated installations so that I could experiment with different fonts without having to load and unload. It can take several minutes in the case of sfz fonts.
