Hi Nasser, usually there will be 2 Kernels not disturbing each other. However, what I occasionally saw was, that if you kill a kernel and start another one, the first does not get killed and the old kernel is still used. hope this helps, Daniel Nasser Abbasi wrote: > Hello; > > If one starts up Mathematica on a windows PC (XP), and then starts another > Mathematica (i.e. 2 completely separate Mathematica, not a new notebook > within the same Mathematica).
