Pentax Digital Camera Utility 5

Can you use PDCU 5 to process images taken with Pentax K-7 and K-5 cameras?

I just got a K-3 with the PDCU 5 CD-ROM. My computer currently runs PDCU 4.40 that I use for my K-7 shots.

If I remove PDCU 4.4 and install PDCU 5, will I be able to PP both my K-7 and K-3 shots?

Thank you in advance for the advice.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Edit: For completness, I have now installed PDCU 5. I removed/de-installed PDCU 4 first, then install PDCU 5 (64 bits) with the CD-ROM provided with the K-3. Some good news:
-I can re-use all my profiles
-PDCU 5 can process both K-3 and K-5 photographs - as well as K20D photographs (see Im4187/Lou's post)
-PDCU 5 can also process K-01 photographs - PDCU 4.4 could not...-
-PDCU 5 seems faster than PDCU 4 (v4.4) on my computer with Win7 64 bits.

Indeed. I have installed it on two PC's now (one WinXP and 32 bits, the other Win7 64bits) and it does seem faster on both than v4.
