Windows 7: Can I run XAMPP in one account and Windows IIS in another account?

Can I run XAMPP in one account and Windows IIS in another account?

I would like to know if it is possible to open two accounts and run XAMPP in one account and run the Windows IIS in another account? I have to do this because I do not have the money to pay to host on the cloud. I am testing different websites on localhost. I just want to make sure that they do not conflict because I know that XAMPP has services that run and I think that they would not run on the other account, but I am not sure. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Both the XAMPP servers and IIS run as services, independently of the user account you're using, they're running everytime if you set them to autostart, without a logged user, or surviving between logoff/logon.

It's also entirely possible to even run them at the same time, provided you configure them to use different ports. For example, for web servers, Apache and IIS both use the standard port 80. You must relocate one of them to a different port if you want to use them both at the same time. FTP servers included in each have the same issue with port 21.
