    does anyone know of software that can run a program twice at the same time? what i mean by running software twice at once, is, running 2 forms of one program at the same time. ie. having the program program.exe run at the same time as program2.exe(real name, program.exe). i think i made my point already so i'll just shut up and wait for an answer.

    P.S. just in case anyone is still confused, basically, something that would start the program up once as program1.exe then load the same program again as program2.exe so they can interact with each other as if they were running on 2 computers across a intranet or the internet. this is kind of hard to explain so anyone that could actually understand this please tell me if you know of any. thanks.

    i understand what your saying, a bit like opening a internet browser then opening the same browser again whilst the first is still open.
    yh i think some programs let you do that?
    cant say i can name any though.
    just out of curiosity why do you want to know this?

    Microsoft Virtual Machine. It allows you to install a 'virtual' computer. You can install an OS on this virutal computer and run whatever you want. So basically, you have 2 PCs built into one. I would recommend you install Win98 on the virtual machine, as ot requires less resources than XP.

    Rich Has the best idea so far. It may be the only one that works easy.

    Just FYI, Virtual Machine gives you a 45 day trial I beleive. After that it quits working. Make sure you have enough HD space, as you need to create a virtual HD for the Virtual Machine. For Win98 plus programs, a gig should be plenty. Also, shut down any uneeded services, as it will affect the performance of the virtual machine.

    Good luck.

    DO you really think they are that stupid? That is illegal anyway if its for real money account. They've already thought of it. I've heard of this before. The online poker admin know how to monitor and think of ways for people to CHEAT like this....Because if this worked everybody will be rich in online poker. Thanks for saying that

    Microsoft Virtual Machine 2004 is now a free download from microsoft. No more 45 day trial. Its fully functional, and free. Wow......MS is giving something away? I almost fell of my chair when I saw that.
