Thanks!

Currently, multiple instances of the program are not possible because they would need to access the same program files and share settings. Each instance would overwrite favorites, history and other settings from all other instances, then each would create several threads to shell to get icons, thumbnails and metadata, and that could also create problems. Theme files also do not work (and language files in the future). There are different ways to do something like this but each has different set of issues.
Perhaps sometime down the line when all functions I have planned are there, and there is not much code I am changing between versions, I could find a way around these issues.
