comment How To run Multiple Versions of the Same Program on Windows 7
then its an issue with the app opening a single-use resource (eg a network connection or something) which the 2nd instance cannot open simultaneously. As a result you cannot run 2 instances together. You could run the 2nd in a virtual machine, but that's the best you're going to get.

I thought the express versions didn't support MFC well - no editor for example, no resource compiler.

comment Why are graphics cards upside-down?
I'm not convinced - the coldest air is sucked in the front and then upwards to the exhaust fan next to the CPU. So the bottom of the case at the back doesn't really get good airflow. Especially when there a large PCB trapping it
