Is There A Way To Open More Than Instance of A Program Or Software By Some Other Means When The Program Or Software Allows For ONLY ONE Instance To Run At A Time?
Posted on 2011-09-29
Hello. I have a question to ask you.
Is there any way to open more than one Nitro PDF Reader (free version) on my desktop at once? …or more generally and the real question I am asking, 'any way to open multiple instances of a program or software when the program allows to run only instance at a time'?
NOTE: I am using Nitro PDF Reader (free version) as an good example since there are times I would need to compare two (or more) PDF files AT ONCE and I cannot. I'm not saying that the Nitro PDF Reader (free version) itself has the ability to open another instance WITHIN the program or software ITSELF (because to my knowledge it cannot), but ANOTHER 'WINDOW' of Nitro PDF Reader (free version). Further, by using Windows 7's Aero Snap where two SEPARATE Nitro PDF Reader (free version) windows would be side-by-side. (Yes, in essence I am asking 2 questions here. My example I presented needs to be answered as well as my general question I posed -- they go together, but can be answered with solutions separately.)
I am aware of those programs or software what have its own intrinsic programming to only provide one instance at once open and I am looking for ways or means in order to overcome this one run instance limitation.
I am wondering if there are:
1. features in Windows 7 that have settings or configurations that allow for more than one instance?
2. third party programs that have the ability to overcome preset and predefined one instance programs or software and allow for more than one than one instance of that program or software to run that same time on Windows 7?
Please provide your own detailed facts, suggestions, hints, and tips; and/or the best possible well written, detailed and documented website links.
