Yes, that's what I do too.
I use FDO 3.2.0 and current SVN and today I added 3.2.2 Beta.
Sometimes I need to compile my provider using
different versions many times a day.

Some time ago I tried to configure FDO with Visual Studio Property Sheets,
but I gave up. It would need to re-factor current building system completely.

It's easy to use various versions if you build from command line only,
then setenvironment.bat script should do the job,
but if you use VS projects and it's not easy then.

Summarizing, I have system-wide environment variables defined as follows:


And if I want to change FDO version, I only update FDOCORE variable using
applet in:
My Compyter -> Properties -> Advanced -> Environment Variables
