Perfect! Works like a charm. Thanks David.
You can safely edit and make different projects in different jAlbum instances this time. What can occur is that jAlbum's recent projects list only will display the recent projects of the last exited jAlbum instance.

Not unless you want to run two instances of jAlbum, and if you do then be careful
