    Use the multiinstance switch with pulsar (launch both instances from a shortcut that uses it)
    Code:
    pulsar.exe /MULTIINSTANCE

    Right click your shortcut and select properties.

    Then add the following:

    SIMS.jpg

    Ta da!

    Edit: DOH! Beaten to it.

    make sure you have logged in before you try to make another instance

    Works happily on any client running SIMS. I've tested on Windows 2003 up to Windows 8.1

    Worked for me on 8.1

    Will be quite useful for some training I'm doing on Monday.

    You'll have to close any running instances of SIMS (including any hung pulsar.exe processes), then launch fresh instances from the new shortcut.

    It works here on Windows 7 SP1 32 & 64bit and on Windows 8 64bit.

    Those of you that are having trouble, do you still have the SIMSLoad.exe included within your shortcut?

    SIMSLoad breaks it.

    Providing you're using S3 you don't need SIMSLoad included in your shortcut anyway so just delete it.

    Embarrassing! @tekins just pointed out that our shortcut was still using simsload - to see that I had to scroll back in the shortcut box!
