I've had the 'regular' MJ for a couple years.

I'd try this trick, but I haven't purchased a Plus yet.

Anyone mind sharing your opinions on if the following might work, please?

Note: For this.. I'm using a PC with multiple desktops / user accounts.

1) Take my regular MJ, connected direct to computer USB, and install it to 1 user account, instead of all accounts.

2) Take a MJ Plus, connected direct to router, and install it to a different user account.

I'm not even sure you can install MJ to specific accounts?.... though, I know I can with any other program / software.

If the 2 steps above work, it would 'seem' that 1 MJ would activate when I login to 1 user account -- and the other MJ would activate when I login to a different user account.

Am I way off base?

Thanks for any ideas Smile

Thanks. This would be the hack I'd use.

You're only about 3 years too late.

Why not just use MJ+ connected to router, orig MJ in USB. This should fly without any but the 'normal' problems

I got it working. Both are in USB. I designated 1 process per user account. Then, changed the advanced parameters in control panel - system - services - local.
