    Hey

    I am running 2 instances of SB on my machine, one called scrapebox.exe, and the other called scrapebox2.exe.

    Now, the other day, 15.26 update came out, and the 1st one updated without any troubles.

    But when I go on updating the second one, I get this error:

    My file structure is this:

    Please help.

    Strange... I did not rename the .exe at all.

    I unpacked the SB folder on the desktop, ran and activated it. Then i duplicated the whole folder 2 times and named it Scrapebox 2 and Scrapebox 3. The .exe inside is always Scrapebox.exe.

    Now i can run all three instances simultaneously and i just updated the second one to .26 while the first one was running.. no issues.

    You could try duplicating the folder of the working instance and then running it. I also set an instance name under Options.

    edit: yes of course, it is the name... the error says it.. the updater needs a file with the name scrapebox.exe in the same folder as the updater that it can update.:D

    Home Page:
    Rename your EXE back to Scrapebox.exe.

    When you want to run multiple instances of Scrapebox you only need to create duplicate folders i.e (Scrapebox, Scrapebox2, Scrapebox3). Do not change any of the file names or executable files inside the folders.
