Program Files and Program Files (x86)

Using a virtual box I can run 2 of the same programs at once, one in the regular program type and one in "Program files (x86)" is there a way I can create yet ANOTHER program source to run 3 or 4 of them same program at once?

Hope this makes sense.

Thanks

  1. Program files and program files x86 are just 32bit and 64bit folders.

    What program are you trying to run multiple instances of.. That may help us understand what your wanting to achieve. Are you trying to dual client some type of game or something?
  2. Yeah its for a game. trying to run 4 clients at once.
  3. Depending on the game.. Sometimes what you can do is just install it to a different location. So for instance when your install it's going to ask if you want to instal it to C:\Programfiles\Gamename\etc

    You can change that to install to the desktop or w/e you would like (or you can just change the name to be game1 game2 game3) You will just have to make sure the "icon" for the game targets the proper folder location.

    Be careful. There are a lot of games that if it recognizes you launching multiple clients it will ban your accounts.
  4. Thanks! I've been running 2 at once for a while now, but I need to kick it up a notch. :P I'll try this out.
  5. Not sure what I'm doing wrong, it says " the program is already running". Maybe open a second virtual box?

    Probably your only option. A virtual box is basically a second machine. The game your trying to dual client doesn't support more then one instance of it open apparently. IT works on a virtual box because it basically thinks it's an entirely different machine.
  7. So I need to find another virtual box program. using Sandboxie right now
