Subject: multiple instances of pidgin / Windows - easier method?
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,
