Problem

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.

Solution

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.

Example

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>""

Environment

GroupWise Messenger client version 1.0.x and Windows XP
