multi-open one application via their separate shortcuts simultanously

Post by void_hero » Thu Feb 17, 2022 4:10 pm

Hi Team,

scenario:
in the same device, multi-open one application via their separate shortcuts simultanously, e.g.: chrome.lnk, chrome 2nd.lnk, the difference? only with different user profile data, which making this behavior meaningful;
Version: 1.4.1.1015 (x64) is ok to do it;
while Version: 1.5.0.1300a (x64) is NOT ok to do it;

question:
why the difference here?

expectation:
since nowadays it's the 1.5 version as the trending version, 1.5 is ok to do this task;

Thanks for the consideration & possible fulfilment.

When you say "simultaneously", do you mean that you are highlighting "chrome1" & "chrome2" & then (context-menu) Open?

Or do you mean that you want chrome1 to open with chrome1 profile, & chrome2 to open with chrome2 profile?

(I take it the latter.)
That being the case, the only thing I can figure that might be interfering (in that you are actually opening a profile that is different from both chrome1 & chrome2; i.e. "chrome-admin") is that you are running 1.5 "as Administrator"?


What does happen in 1.5 when you open chrome1 & chrome2, what profiles get opened?

Thank you for the bug report void_hero,

Only one shortcut is opened.
This is a bug with the Windows Shell.

I will add a work around for Everything when using the open verb.

For now, please disable shell_execute_invoke_id_list:
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /shell_execute_invoke_id_list=0
  • If successful, shell_execute_invoke_id_list=0 is shown in the status bar for a few seconds.
Note: Disabling shell_execute_invoke_id_list may break some verbs when multiple files are selected.
(for example, right clicking multiple mp3 files and clicking play may open each individual mp3, playing them all at the same time)



shell_execute_invoke_id_list

i just tested what you said, it's the same effect with what i did: highlighting "chrome1" & "chrome2" & then Enter;

i'm not running 1.5 "as Administrator", and since now i used Mr.void's work around to make it solved, i will just let it go as it is;

before the work around, it will just open the chrome1;

Everything 1.5.0.1301a fixes an issue with opening multiple lnk files.

Everything will now open each individual file when a lnk file is selected.
