    prob running multiple instances of RR

    hey guys,

    I have a prob I hope you guys can help me with. I installed two instances of RR each instance copied to its own dir, ie. "c:\Program Files\Road Runner" and "c:\Program Files\Road Runner2" I changed the skin position for the second to appear on my second monitor. Everything works fine when I run each instance alone (Roadrunner.exe will run on the primary screen, and roadrunner2.exe will run on the second), However I cannot get them to both run at the same time. I tried running the second instance as another user, but that would not work either. Any ideas why I cant run multiple instances?

    thanks in advance

    Doesn't RR have built in multi screen support?

    Try RevFE

    By default RR checks if it's already running to prevent accidental runs after/when it's already loaded/loading.

    You can run multiple instances of RR using "RoadRunner.exe /2" (/2 command line parameter allows you to run a second copy) -- That's the easy part of running two copies. The hard part will be managing the sound, and the input (touchscreen etc) on the two instances.

    wow thanks... cant believe it was that easy. I also made a .bat file to load both from one icon I have both instances running the same instance of winamp, which is what I want. As for the touchscreens xenarc 700tsv's come with the software to allow multiple monitors, add nvidia nview to allow proper display and everything is working great... so far. I haven't had too much of a chance to play with it.

    Thanks again
