You can have both versions of Gnupg on your system (I do).  The only
problem I ever had was that WinPT used the latest executable
installation irregardless of the defaults set within the program - to
fix this I installed Gnupg 2.* (with whatever utilities you wanted)
and than reinstated Gnupg 1.4.11, which was redundant ,but only so the
front ends would use the version I wanted with them to - actually the
only one that cared was WinPT, Enigmail (used the program settings)
and GPGShell never burped once.

The obvious factor is that the different versions of Gnupg are in
different directories.
