This is possible, but it's easier to do by setting environment variables
rather than editing the .bat files. You will need to make sure that at
least the service name (RABBITMQ_SERVICENAME) node name
(RABBITMQ_NODENAME) and port (RABBITMQ_NODE_PORT) are set to values that
are different from the existing service. The hidden
"rabbitmq-service.bat list" command can help you make sure the values
are all different.
Version 1.7.2 is very old. In fact it is so old that recent (R14B0*)
versions of Erlang are no longer compatible with the compiled .beam
format, so you will need to install the version 1.7.2 service to use an
old enough version of Erlang. The two rabbit services do not need to be
running on the same version of Erlang.
