You may use set up a Windows shortcut with using command line switches to specify which database the software will open. This way you can open two databases (of the same version) from the same client machine.
To create a shortcut:
1. Locate the .exe. This is usually stored in “C:\program files(x86)\Insolvency\Insol5.exe”
2. RH click and create the shortcut to your desktop (rename as needed)
3. Then RH Click on the shortcut and select Properties to get to the Target
4. Then add “C:\program files\Insolvency\Insol5.exe” /open=MYSVR\MYINSTANCE~DataBase Name
5. Repeat steps 1 to 4 for the second database to connect. (ensure the second database is connected before repeating the steps)
Here is an example of two separate shortcuts linking to separate databases. Edit the properties of a shortcut and enter the target field:
“C:\Program files\Insolvency\Insol5.exe” /open=MYSVR\MYINSTANCE~Insol2
“C:\Program files\Insolvency\Insol5.exe” /open=MYSVR\MYINSTANCE~MYOTHERDB
There is a space after “Insol5.exe” between “/open”.
You may use integrated security i.e. a MS Windows log on is required each time you log on to the database.
The example command line switch is:
“C:\program files\MYOB\Insolvency\Insol5.exe” /INTSEC
When the /INTSEC switch is used, enter your MS Windows credentials to logon to Insolvency.>
This switch will open separate copies of the application simultaneously rather than switching you back to the open instance of the application. The default operation of the software was changed (to switch back to the open instance) because each time you link to the application from an email you end up with multiple copies of the application running which causes unwanted versions of the application in memory.
Run Multiple Copies of the application
When you have the application running and you want to run a second copy of the application, hold the CTR key while opening the application.
