im trying to run two instances of one program (dance game called Pump It Up). ive tried quad-clicking it but it loads too fast so i cant get the last click in. is there an easier way to do this?

thx!

Alot of programs you can run two instances of. You have to install it twice, to different directories. I highly doubt this will work with a game, but you can try.

maybe some commandline type thing not sure how it works in windows to load a program and get the prompt back immediately

some sort of mod of this might work though
\> C:\path\to\proggie & && C:\path\to\proggie &

on nix systems the & makes it run in the background or in the case of gui apps runs them and returns you to the prompt and the && is the logical AND so it does the part in front of the && and then does the part after as well

actually testing this the first & does return you to the prompt, but the && doesnt work

if you make a .bat file which does
C:\path\to\proggie &
C:\path\to\proggie &

then it might work

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
