Launch more than one instance of NWC2

I can have NWC 1.75 and NWC2 running at the same time, but I cannot load more than one instance of NWC2. Has anyone figured out how?

It would be most helpful to be able to load NWC2.0 and the new Beta (NWC2.1 Beta 6 as of this writing), copy & paste between them and compare the changes.

Currently, I must save the output as a graphic, close NWC2 and launch the Beta. This is rather time consuming.

You can start the original NWC2 release with the "/newinst" option. Currently, you can also do this in the beta, but the option might become "-newinst" before final release.

For general use, opening multiple instances of NWC2 is not recommended.

Thanks. That seems to work. Had I been able to find:
If the command line does not contain the /newinst option, then any single invocation of an NWC2 file should always open the same running instance of the program.
and been able to draw the proper implications from it, I wouldn't have needed to ask.

I guess there are still a few topics in General Discussion that I haven't read ...

Opening multiple instances of NWC2 may cause the attached notification. I'm just reporting this. IMO, it is not so annoying that any fix is needed.
