Can I use ionic 2.0.0-beta.11 and ionic rc0 on the same machine

I have two projects with me built in ionic 2.0.0-beta.11. I want to update only one to rc0 without having an impact on the other project?
Is there a good way to do that?
I am not able to do this for now because on updating to rc0, ionic cli version gets updated which breaks my existing application that is built in ionic 2.0.0-beta.11
