I started two instances of gtalk. Each of them uses different gmail account. Used /nomutex parameter in target path.

At the moment after reboot only one instance is loaded.

How can I start two instances of gtalk on startup on windows 7 so that each uses different account?

You can easily log into multiple accounts with one instance of Pidgin and run that at startup. It's what I ended up doing when I started having to log into both a gmail and a google talk for apps account.

Pidgin doesn't support all features of gtalk I need. – Trac3 Jan 27 '11 at 0:08
@Trac3, what features of Gtalk does Pidgin lack which you want? It's possible that the features you seek may be available as a plugin or through some feature you haven't seen before. – nhinkle Jan 27 '11 at 7:57
