Multiple Instances using Thunderbird Portable 2nd Profile

Hi,

I have multiple profiles running in multiple instances of thunderbird at same time.

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Run_multiple_copies_of_Thunderbird_at_the_same...

Each version of thunderbird portable has updated
ThunderbirdPortable.ini
with changes as below
AdditionalParameters= -no-remote

I have setup multiple copies of PortableApps

ThunderbirdPortable45
ThunderbirdPortable78
and latest
ThunderbirdPortable91
ThunderbirdPortable91ESR

I plan to combine all these a single ThunderbirdPortable102 copy with multiple profile

so have setup
ThunderbirdPortable
ThunderbirdPortable2ndProfile

So basically would start primary profile via main folder and 2nd profile started later to start my next profile. The 2ndprofile launcher fails to start and gives errror thunderbirdportable .exe already running.

If you can update this I will be able combine all my profiles to single version and save space in multiple app directory

ThunderbirdPortable
ThunderbirdPortable2ndProfile
ThunderbirdPortable3rdProfile
ThunderbirdPortable4thProfile

ThunderbirdPortable2ndProfile_2.0.paf.exe

I tried removing
section
;Check if already running
FindProcDLL::FindProc "ThunderbirdPortable.exe"
${If} $R0 != "1"
;Not Running

from ThunderbirdPortable2ndProfileU.nsi and recompile using NSIS. compiled exe still gives app running error

PS. It is important for me run these profiles simultaneous and not work on them at single instance

This launcher needs to be updated which will allow to run in multiple instances to take advantages of thunderbird. can you update this.

; MessageBox MB_OK|MB_ICONINFORMATION `$(LauncherAlreadyRunning)`

and re-compiled using NSISPortable

App\DefaultData

Seems to now run multiple instances of ThunderBird.

Will make more test on multiple profiles and post update
