Separate instances of Acrobat

    Anyone know how to get acrobat to open each pdf in a seperate instance of Acrobat Reader?   I'm getting feed up clicking the wrong [x] in acrobat and have all the docs I had open close! Smiley  It would be nice to be able to see two pdf's side by side as well.

    Cheers,

    Stephen.

    I don't think you can.

    I tried using the "runas" trick, but I got a fatal exception.

    Why do that anyway. Just use Ctrl+W to close the document. In fact, it's better to use MDI since you can automatically tile the child windows horizontally or vertically in Windows > Tile, as per request. Only problem is you cannot easily know which documents are loaded. No tabs. Though the Windows menu helps some.

    Fine until you start trying to spreading the docs over multiple monitors.

    re acrobat.exe /n

    Thank you very much!  I have been searching for that for 3 months now!
