    Hey folks!

    Now I've recently downloaded a free software, that automates some tasks for one of my campaigns. No spam involved, all whitehat. Now the software isn't multi-threaded and it's really boring getting one task at a time done. I've tried running multiple instances of it but it won't let me. So is there some kind of trick that can help?

    What I tried/am thinking of trying:

    1) I've tried copying its program files folder and renaming the .exe but that didn't cut it.

    2) I actually thought of running the software across, 5-10 VPSs for example, but I'm not sure that's a good idea since each VPS would basically be doing nothing except running the software which requires just about 50 MBs of RAM and little bandwidth. It's also gonna be costly so unless there are some reliable 5 buck VPSs out there that would give like, just enough resources for it to run, I can't see how this could be beneficial.

    3) I also thought of renting a VPS with a significant amount of resources and running multiple virtual machines inside. But I haven't ever worked with virtual machines to be honest, plus, I dunno what kind of a VPS would smoothly run 5-10 virtual machines, and I'm not sure it would be cost effective at the end of the day.

    Your feedbback about my thoughts to tackle the problem or any suggestions would be highly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Sandieboxie full version maybe could do something. Google for its crack. Used it before to triple client on mmorpg.

    Hmm on their sales page it says $15, still a good deal perhaps but I was wondering where you saw that $12. Also can you personally vouch for them?

    Thanks a lot for the input.

    Thanks will check it out and see if it can help. :)

    +1 for Sandboxie. Worth paying for. I love Sandboxie.

    You can open viruses in it and it won't harm your PC too, always a great plus.

    Another +1 for sandboxie. But if you want performance, depending on the program you're going to need a fast system/connection. Multiple VPSs or a couple high end dedis running sandbox might be a better choice.

    You could use virtualbox to create several Windows 7 instances on your machine (they would each have the same IP then as well)
