Help - Can I install two different interfaces without getting driver conflict?

I want to install my RME PCIe host card for use with my AES system when I'm doing serious recordings.

And also install a USB mixer interface for when I'm writing.

I defiantly WON'T be using both at the same time.

My intention is to select in Cubase Pro 10 the one I need depending on whether I'm writing or recording.

My question is will installing two sets of drivers cause any issues with Windows 10 even if I'm NOT using both interfaces at the same time?

This works.
Today I have drivers for a good handful of different interfaces installed (Win10).
3 actual audio interfaces plus interface-drivers for my Roland synths that come with an audio interface feature built-in (System-1, TR-8S, TB-3).
You can hook them all up together but most DAWs only support one to be used at any given time and you have to choose which one it is for the current session in the DAW's preferences.

I don't think you'll have a problem. Of course, you'll only be able to use one at a time, I think.
