I am not sure what you are trying to do. But why would you want to have a second instamce of the AppLauncher.

I used it a lot in Vista where I had a sidebar and it was readily accessible. Then I used it in Win7 where I tweaked a sidebar. But on my X64 systems I prefer to use toolbars that are more easily accessible.

Have a look at the Toolbars tutorial link I posted earlier (in post #2). That may be even better for your purposes.
