Sometimes we've needed to launch GroupWise Messenger twice (for example, to connect to two GroupWise Messenger Systems). If you double-click the GroupWise Messenger icon after it's running, it only opens the contact list.
The solution is to launch application with another local user, like this ...
runas /env /user:<local_user> "C:\NOVELL\Messenger\NMCL32.exe /ipa-<ip_server> /ipp-<port_service>" <local_user>: local Windows XP account <ip_server>: IP address of GW Messenger server <ip_service>: default: 8300
Note that this script requests local user password.
You can create a shortcut with the following script:
CMD /C "runas /env /user:<local_user> "C:\NOVELL\Messenger\NMCL32.exe /ipa-<ip_server> /ipp-<port_service>""
GroupWise Messenger client version 1.0.x and Windows XP
