Run two instances of the same Java JNLP simultaneously

I'm trying to find a way to simultaneously launch multiple instances of the same Java .jnlp on the same PC. Currently the .jnlp is called from a shortcut using Java SE with the following paths:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.7.0_75\bin\javaws.exe" http://servername.domain/applicationname/launch.jnlp 

Unfortunately I get the error: "An instance of ProgamName is already running. ONly one may be running at a time."

The developer insists that this is a limitation of Java, and suggested using a terminal server to open a second instance on the same PC, which seems cumbersome and ridiculous to me. My hope is that there is some way to perhaps specify a differnt application name from the shortcut or from a launch script that would allow java to think they are tow different applications.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I have a jnlp that checks my download speed. It's a system tray app. Here are two of them running simultaneously

Well, I suppose that would suggest that perhaps Java is not to blame then.

Probably not. Demonstrate the falsity or truth by running two of say, these

Thank you, that confirms that it isn't Java, but rather the application.

Check that you're not running an app designed to be a singleton
