Possible to use B1/B2 when K-1 has been issued?

Due to the waits we all have and had at VSC, it sort of messed up some of our plans and I am now wondering if it's possible that after K-1 is issued/stamped in passport, fiancee can still come to the US under B1/B2. Is any other visa in passport cancelled/void??

We had a trip planned outside the US and it looks like the advanced parole would not be on time for that trip, so the thinking is she comes under B1/B2, we go on the trip and upon return then she uses the K-1 and then we follow the normal procedure.

The trip is well under the 6 months of the K-1 but not far enough for advance parole papers to be issued. And no, I can't move the trip, it is a business trip for me and I just don't see how can I leave her alone so soon after she comes. She does not know how to drive, which is a must around here if you want to get groceries and other essentials, there is no one I know where we live than can help and the trip is long enough that I don't feel very good about leaving here alone.

Why all this? Well, she is moving here, so she will bring all she is bringing, literally drop it home and then we are off to this other trip. Not practical to haul around the world several pieces of luggage. There doesn't seem to be a good/reliable/cost effective service to ship things here while we meet in this other country so she doesn't have to come into the US. And a stopover in the US is actually ideal (destination is South America, she's coming from Europe)

Yes other visas are canceled when the K-1 is issued. Also if she has to go through the US they may not let her through without activating the K-1 anyways.
