well not really...

Notepad is natively a multi-session program i mean it can run any
number of itself cleanly.

What i'm trying to accomplish is to launch an application that is not
"multi-session". I know that this is possible (tricks in the
process/applications threads) but i dont know how :)

Any idea??

Thanks for reply!
Rob
