Is it possible to have more than one installation of Obsidian at the same time?

What I’m trying to do

I’ve tried setting up Obsidian on a virtual machine on the PC but I can only set up Linux Virtual machines and that lead me down a rabbit hole i didn’t want to be in! I want to experiment with different plug in configurations on the same Windows 10 machine as well as keep a secure pure Obsidian install with confidential thoughts without trying to set it up as portable software. Any ideas?

Unless I’m misunderstanding your points about virtual machines, you can easily set up what you want to do as each vault keeps its own set of plugins etc. See

Now I understand, thank you! I guess my main fear is that installing community plug ins might in some way risk the security integrity of software.
