Windows 7: Unable to play a web-based game with two different users under Win 7

Unable to play a web-based game with two different users under Win 7


I play some web-based online games that are I believe built with adobe flash.

With Windows XP, I was able to right-click on IE short-cut, choose "run with different credentials" from advance tap; then I can play the same game with two accounts(users) at the same time. (Note: I am still able to do so with my girlfriend's XP system. Here is how Iíve done it; simply create a short-cut for IE on my desktop, and for the new IE short-cut, I select "run with different credentials" under advance tap, then enter the windows' user name and password I created; then two IE windows are running at the same time, running the same game, with two the different login(two different users).)

However, it doesn't work after I've installed Windows 7 64bit on my desktop! The "run as a different users" function didn't work the way it was with XP; seems to me that the resources, cookies or users information are shares between the primary account and the secondary user account. (symptom: I logged in the game with my FIREFOX; then open firefox again with a different users (passworded), the game will log me out saying "you're already logged in to this game on this computer"). I've tried running it as a different user, run as admin.... tried with IE, Firefox, Opera & Safari.... non of them works for me. When the second games page loads up, the first one would know, and kick me out.

In order to play the game, I need to use a laptop and a desktop together now! Iím wondering if there a way around it; so that I could still use only my desktop and run the game in two users without conflicting each other?

I don't believe MSFT would down-grade their products, if this feature is capable to do so with XP; Windows 7, should be capable as well. I think there must be a way, I just don't know as of yet.

Thank you very much for patiently reading, I hope you understand my saturation.

Thank you very much again!
