I want to work with version 1.2.1 and 1.3.6

Is it possible to install and work with 2 environments on the same computer?

Depending upon your needs, you may want to create a separate profile for each Wireshark version and then start whichever version of Wireshark with the -C option to specify the profile to be used....

Also: 1.2.1 is a rather old version and 1.3.6 is an old development version.

The current stable version 1.4.3 contains whatever was in 1.3.6 (and additional fixes).

Why do you need to run both a production and a development version ?

What I usually do is have the main version installed "normally" (the stable version, or the "most stable" to be precise, 1.4.3 is slowly getting there but often I revert to 1.2.x still). And then I install the other (unstable, in my case "bleeding edge") version as a portable app which makes both of them totally independent from each other.

But I have to agree with Bill, versions 1.2.1 and 1.3.6 are odd choices. You might consider 1.2.14 and 1.4.3 (or 1.5.x if you like "bleeding").
