I have a project that i'm currently working on and I might need to be able to run multiple instances of it.  How would I go about doing that, I haven't done much in terms of actual coding yet, but I'm beginning and wanted to know so I could plan around it.  Thanks and I appreciate any comments.

Double click on the program to start the first instance of the program and then... double click on the program again to start the second instance.

Are you sure that's all I have to do, I was under the impression that if I double-clicked it again that it would take me to the first instance of the program?  Am I mistaken?

It's actually a bit more difficult to limit it to one instance (although it can be done).
