Yes. It's a bit fiddly though.
You'll need to install at least one of the versions manually, the .exe
installer assumes there's only one installation on the machine:
You'll need to set various environment variables to separate the two:
I would think you'd need at least RABBITMQ_BASE, RABBITMQ_NODE_PORT,
RABBITMQ_NODENAME, RABBITMQ_PLUGINS_DIR and RABBITMQ_PLUGINS_EXPAND_DIR.
Also RABBITMQ_SERVICENAME if you want to install both as services.
At least 2.8.6 and 3.3.4 use different ports for the management plugin
by default, so you don't have to reconfigure that.
