Installation coexistence with legacy releases

CAST Architecture Checker has been "decoupled" from the CAST AIP setup so that it is now "standalone" (it will continue to be shipped with CAST AIP but this release will not receive any new features or updates). If you already have previous legacy releases of CAST Architecture Checker installed on the target workstation originating from the CAST AIP setup, then you can install a standalone release of the CAST Architecture Checker at the same time and the two can co-exist without issue since the default installation locations are different.
