    I need to run 5 instances of single program. I have copied the program in 5 different folders.

    for example, D:\p1\p.exe, D:\p2\p.exe, D:\p3\p.exe and so on.

    is it possible to run them all at the same time? normally, I can run it only once.

    ( I Know sandboxie can do this. but i am having compatibility issues with sandboxie and my program, so anyone know any other method to run, it would be great helpful for me)

    Did you just copy the files or did you install five times over? :g:

    I copied them 4 times not installed 5 times.

    I need to run this same program from different folder. because I have to run them through proxycap ( different proxy )

    Programs can check for multiple instances and limit them. Copying them over and over to new places dont matter.
