How to run multiple Adobe Air apps Tweetdeck
July 7, 2011 1 Comment
Twitter columns can get pretty busy if your tweeting from multiple accounts.
I wanted to find the benefits of utilizing 2 display monitors for separate accounts or in some cases the same accounts with unique columns per screen for tweets based on topics, followers or lists.
An application has been written by Chris Deely named AirAppDuplicator
Download it here
Get started by clicking download and then on AirAppDuplicator.AIR package. Proceed past the warnings to install and trust this product (at your own risk). When the application has finished installing right click to run as Administrator if your in Windows to get the Air Apps to clone, you will only have to do this once.
Last step, navigate to the directory path of the application you want to duplicate, in my case it was Tweetdeck located in c:\program files (x86)\tweetdeck on my windows 7 machine and click to clone. What actually happens is AirAppDuplicator will copy the directory to a similar directory appending 2 at the end of the name.
I haven’t run into any issues yet with multiple instances and i’m not the author of the application. Use at your own risk! ;)
