I have an app using OV 2022.1. This versión has support for VPU accelerators. As the app is growing, some functionalities NEED recent openVINO distributions but... doing this NO SUPPORT for VPU is given... Can't forget customers using that functionality but it's a must improving my product with new models using latest improvements given by 2023.x.
Is it fine to use these two versions at the same time side by side?
Thank you for your help.
Thank you for reaching out to Intel Customer Support.
You can use two OpenVINO versions side by side. It is recommended to use a virtual environment for each of them to avoid any conflict.
That was the first thing I did, but for a Python prototype. Of course it works!
The problem is when I have a c++ app with lots of things implemented on it for a lot of devices, being one of them VPU.
But now, more things will be added to the app, recent OV versions are required for that but... NO VPU support.
Of course, the first thing comes to mind is creating two versions of the app but, for now, that is not an option here.
So, the question remains.
Thanks in advance.
Hi Antonio Bejar,
Multiple version of OpenVINO is allowed to co-exist on the same system. It is not recommended to run a model/sample from an old version to the latest version, because some of the functions may not be supported and possibly result in error.
Can you share a bit more detail on your objective? Also, are using Raspberry Pi?
As of now, the latest OpenVINO version that supports NCS2 is 2022.3.1.
