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/

Can i link a script file containing statements
(1)open -n /Applications/
(2)open -n /Applications/

with the application icon click....

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

key-Executable file {present at /Applications/}

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

Is there any solution for the above problem

QUOTE Thanks
