Can i start two MSN Messanger instances?

Hello experts,

i basically would like to start two MSN Messenger instances. This is in order to connect to both my Passport accounts at a time...

Currently, i work around this by starting the instances from two different versions of the Messenger.

So, is there any way to start two MSN Messenger instances (from the same version)?

TIA. -julio

Yes you can, but you'll have to patch your msn. This goes against the MS agreement you read on installation.

go to www.mess.be > click All msn messenger downloads >  MSN Messenger Polygamy aka Multi MSN > choose one.

By default, you cannot open multiple instances, but you can try this free program and give it a try:

You are use in 2 msn email accounts. But you can open just 1 msn messenger. So you have to switch every time to check the other account if you have any new emails. Then download this program.
You can open now more msn messengers.

- Open the file msmsgs.exe
- Login in what an email
- If you open again msmsgs.exe Then will open a
second msn messenger. Now you can login again.
