Multiple GTalk Simultaneously

Have Multiple Google Accounts?
And want to login with both of them on Gtalk on single PC?

This is what I wanted to do as I’ve got two Google IDs, so I found out the way to run multiple GTalks simultaneously…

How to do it:

  1. Create a shortcut to GTalk on your desktop (if you dont have currently).
  2. Go to the properties of the shortcut. There in the target, you’ll see something like: “C:\Program Files\Google\Google Talk\googletalk.exe”
  3. Add /mutex to that target line. Then the line would be : “C:\Program Files\Google\Google Talk\googletalk.exe” /nomutex
  4. “Apply” it and then click “Ok”.
  5. Check out if it works, Enjoy Multi-GTalks!

Don’t forget to leave comments here if this works…[:)]

How this Works:
The mutex is short for mutual exclusion object. A mutex is a program object that allows multiple program threads to share the same resource, but not simultaneously.

So, in the hack above, we used nomutex (no-mutex) so to use the same resources simultaneously…
