Problem while opening two Delphi instances

HI,

 I can't open two instances of Delphi in my m/c. What should I do ? What could be the problem ?

 If at all I try to open another project it is opening in the same project(that means in that single delphi instance itself).

But I suspect that the Delphi installation was not done in my Login. is it or is there some other problem.

Solve my probs ASAP.

Thanks

Ibrahim.

Hi,

I have Delphi 5 and I'm able to open several instances. The way it could be done is to start a new Delphi instance (a shortcut to Delphi32.exe). If you double-click on a .dpr file then it will be opened in the current instance.

Regards, Geo

Mmm, I'm not sure about this one but here's what I think anyway, if you don't have Delphi 6 or 7, I don't think you can have multiple instance of Delphi opened.

Also, *prior* of Delphi 7 (I think), installation was done on the current user registry (now it is global) but I don't think it is your problem. If this was your problem you'd have not components palette. If this is the case, put your Delphi CD, starts the installation and choose Registry only on one of the first screens.

But as I said higher, you won't be able to open multiple instances of Delphi if you have Delphi 5 and down. Nor you'll be able to open multiple projects. You can File | Open other project's source (.pas) tought to help you refer to other sources. Do *not* Project | Add to Project if you don't need to use those source in your new project.


Hope it helps!
Have a nice day! :-)
