	I'm running pidgin in windows, I typically use it and just leave it on for hours. But a friend has been staying with and wants to use pidgin instead of some sort of other prog... Problem comes up trying to get multiple working without closing mine first and/or typing the command(s) on my account and his (and that seems only way to do this). I even tried making a batch file and add to group policy to start when user logs in but that still hasn't worked.
	
	Command I'm using is: "set PIDGIN_MULTI_INST=1″
	
	Is there another method to allow this? reg fix, startup option, etc... that's worked for someone else in past
	please help, no sure where to go from here
	
	Thank for time,
	Geoff
