If I have Aquafold running, I would like to have another instance running at the same time. How can this be done. Currently if I click on the icon to load it again, it brings me to the one that is currently up and running.
Click on File -> New Window in the Aqua Data Studio that is currently open. That will open a new ADS. See attached screenshot.
So, If I wanted to put Aquafold on a report computer. The purpose of the computer is to run reports, I would never be able to bring up a new instance of Aquafold to process another job. (If I am understanding you correctly.) I would have to wait until the current job is done before another job would run.
All new windows would run under the same jvm so some tasks would be synchronous and others asynchronous. I don't know how you are running your reports but; for example, you can run queries in separate ADS windows at the same time.
As for starting multiple Aqua Data Studio instances from an exe or bat, this is really not recommended as Aqua Data Studio was designed to have a single instance running on a single machine. Running multiple instances could be problematic since they would share the same datastudio property files. What is saved in one instance could get wiped out by the other instance. That said, you can try running multiple instances using the datastudio.bat file instead of the datastudio.exe.
Hope that helps,
