It can often be useful to open two of the same applications in Windows Xp. Maybe you are in Microsoft paint and want to be editing one photo and have the original next to it? Or maybe you want to be your work and personal MSN Messenger account at the same time?
With a simple command in the launch options you can run two programs at the same time instantly. First you want to locate the launch icon for the program you want to open. Find the original as you can run into problems if you are using a shortcut.
1) Right click on the icon you wish to run and point your mouse on PROPERTIES and click.
2) Underneath you will see a field called TARGET. After the last ” add a space and -m. If target reads
You want to change to: “C:\Program Files\Ventrilo\Ventrilo.exe” -m
Click apply and ok and close out. You should now be able to open multiple instances of the application.
