With the conflicting info above I still couldn’t get things installed, so in my case, since I wasn’t using my previous Ignition setup any longer I fully uninstalled the previous gateway etc and then redownloaded Maker (which is now the exe and not a zip), and at the end of the install, once the gateway first loads, you get to pick if you want the Maker edition (and then enter your License and API key).
So running now, but if I’d actually needed the previous Ignition on the same system I’d recommend a VM for sure for at least one of them as they don’t play nice together yet. (Although a VM defeats, imo, having something you would leave running normally in a home setup. Probably needs a dedicated system at some point.)
Not sure how this never came up in testing though unless you all use so many dedicated VM’s/Containers for standalone testing that there were no dual install tests?
Thanks for those that tried to help.
