Re: question on 2 separate Mathematica instances on the same PC

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
