Can SQL Server 2008 Express and SQL Compact Edition be installed on the same machine

I have installed SQL Server 2008 express and Visual Studio 2008 Web Developer Express on my development machine and want to experiment with Web Matrix which requires the Compact Edition (4.0 I think).  Will these two reside on the same machine without causing a problem?

Yes they will work. The compact edition is not actually a server engine, and runs from an application.

Worked as cyberkiwi said.  Both Microsoft Server Studio 2008/SQL Server 2008 Express and Web Matrix/Compact Edition 4.0 work OK.  Thanks, RLB
