Title:Check for second instance on start
Version:2.14
Navigate: 1-3

> A check for an already running instance of OWB should be done on startup.

It's intentional that you can run OWB several times, for example some users want to be able to run different versions at the same time for comparing them.
With the OWB Blastoise port it wasn't possible, it aborted when it couldn't create the unique "OWB" ARexx port.

The difference is basically the size of the OWB executable, about 25-30 MB.

@joerg

OK, i could do what i want with OpenURL.
But therefore i'd need a "Open the URL in a new window/tab" and a "ICONIFY/UNICONIFY" AREXX command. Could you maybe add those to the next release, please :-)

@joerg

Any news on implementing those two AREXX commands?
Please?

Thanky for the superb new versions, keep them coming :-)
