Default Can mprime and Prime95 share work?

I'm running a Linux Windows dual boot machine, with Linux being my main OS. I use Windows rarely, but when I do I can spend even up to half a day there and wouldn't mind not wasting those cycles. I'd like to have Prime 95 continue with my mprime work. Will simply copying the prime95 executable into my mprime folder and running it work? With same settings and everything? Or do I need anything else?

I'm pretty sure the save files are cross-compatible.

As long as each has access to the needed dll's and config files and save files, they can work.
