Can SQL Server 2016 Express be installed (safely) over SQL Server 2014? I don't want to have to uninstall any of the SQL Server 2014 if I can avoid it.

What I have tried:

Yesterday I tried to uninstall all the SQL Server 2014 before installing SQL Server 2016 Express. Caused a problem I couldn't figure out, and I wound up having to restore the whole disk drive.

Thanks O'Griff, I read the article carefully and then installed SQL Server 2016 Express over the 2014 install. No problems. This question relates to a previous one I posted "Application cannot find DLL file". I will update that one now, so if you could look at it, I would appreciate very much.
