Way to launch 2 instances of program at once

Being lazy here but is there a way to launch 2 versions of imgburn at once? Say a desktop icon I can click on or something like that?

you could write a .bat file and list the program twice

so an example would be

--------------------------
net start imgburn
net start imgburn
exit
--------------------------

in cmd type in 'net start' to see all the started services and then use the name for your imgburn program

Hi

I have ImgBurn installed on my PC. It has a shortcut to the program on my Desktop. I doubled clicked on it once and it launched ImgBurn. I then did the same a second time and it open a second instance of the program.

I then had two instances of the program running. I remember doing this before which enabled to burn a disc simultaneously in both my DVD drives.

Sorry, just reread your post and realise now you want to lauch them both at the same time, thus saving you a few seconds on my method!

lol tiffer that's not lazy that's logical....although creating a bat file isn't exactly lazy either. but it is lazier to set it up once than clicking twice everytime
