It is probably the server that is configured that it only allows a single connection from any one IP address, When the second application loads, the server refuses the connection and it closes. This is perfectly reasonable when you look at it from the servers perceptive. Trying to send the same data to the same IP address twice would get it confused.

It depends on the programme. Some programmes are configured so it is impossible to have two instances running at the same time. This is especially true of programmes that access data on the hard disk. Two instances trying to manipulate the same data could be catastrophic. This may be one of them

Apparently you didn't feel the name of the program was important to the discussion?

The exact name of the program and maybe the version level may have helped us.

What is it?

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

Hello mickliq,

Thanks for your reply
Name of the program is "myquote.exe". This application fetch real time data from stock exchange (NSE)
To run "myquotes.exe" one must have "amibroker.exe" running.
Even if I open 2 instances of "amibroker.exe" it is not possible to open two instances of "myquotes.exe"

Thanks,
Babu
