How to run another instance of an Application by double clicking on its Icon
 
How can i run another instance of the application while the application is already running, by clicking on the application Icon in /Applications/.
I dont want to run it from /Applications/myapp.app/Contents/MacOS/myapp

Can i link a script file containing statements
(1)open -n /Applications/myapp.app
or
(2)open -n /Applications/myapp.app/Contents/MacOS/myapp

with the application icon click....

i have tried making changes in Info.plist of the application
key-Executable file value-myapp {present at /Applications/myapp.app/Contents/MacOS/myapp}

changes
key-Executable file value-launch.sh {present at /Applications/myapp.app/Contents/MacOS/launch.sh}

As i know an Application Bundle on OS X can only be started once.by simply copying the bundle the same application can be launched twice.

Is there any solution for the above problem

Thanks
Ankit
