Running Two Instances of OE?

Hi there,

I usually have about 30 small websites on the sequencer downloaded every 30 minutes or so.
I also have one giant website that I`m downloading the entire week (it`s a big, very active forum).

I`m wondering if it`s possible to run two instances of OE so I can have one window downloading the big site (very low priority and bandwidth) - and a 2nd window that will download the 30 quick websites every 30 minutes.

Any idea for a solution, or maybe it is solved on version 3.0?

It is possible right now. You only have to run Offline Explorer with the following command line parameter:

oe.exe /instance

This will force it not to search for an already running instance of Offline Explorer.

/instance is not mentioned in the help file and it took me some time to figure out that it acutally exists. You might add it to the help please.
