Hello Geeks,

I have a problem, I've downloaded a file with the extension .jar and it is limited to only running one per computer. I know for .exe files you can run them as a different user to open another one but the .jar file doesn't have that option.

I was wondering whether or not there is a way to run a .jar file from a different user or somehow else run it twice when it's limited to one per computer.

Thank you for your reply,

I'm on Windows 7 by the way,

I did that and it didn't give me anything but I messed around a little with what the cmd was giving me and I got to a point where it asks me for the password of the user but it doesn't let me type it in, and when I hit enter it says login failure unkown username or password.
