- Hi Mark, Eric, All;
Perhaps the experts can enlghten us on the following phenomina.

independent would be a significant improvemnent.
Some time ago (4.?) I tried the two name approach but the Help
files did not operate correctly. I think the fix was to rename
the NotePro.exe and NotePro.ini before opening Help. I decided
that was too much trouble when I installed the next releases.
I now simply have differently named folders.
I would like to rename the .exe and .ini if I could be sure no
other proiblems would arise. I will be rebuilding my harddisk
soon and I will try that approach again.

and that program's View|Options|General|Allow Multiple Instances
must be set or the other copies will not open. I just discovered
that Allow Multiple Instances is automatically set in the other
two copies when the .exes are opened.

I take a simple approach to NT. If something I try
doesn't work, I try other methods until I find an approach
that will work. I do some testing if I think a bug exists.
Good luck, Len
