Question:

Sometimes I get this error message, but it stopped working. How do I start a second session of Editor or Styler?

Answer:

On the executable shortcut, make the following change.

If this is where your application is installed:

Code: Select all

C:\Program Files\PTC\Arbortext Editor\bin\x64\editor.exe


You can change the shortcut
Change it like this to get Styler:

Code: Select all

"C:\Program Files\PTC\Arbortext Editor\bin\x64\editor.exe" -styler


Change it like this to get a new instance:

Code: Select all

"C:\Program Files\PTC\Arbortext Editor\bin\x64\editor.exe" -newinstance


Change it like this to get a new instance + Styler:

Code: Select all

"C:\Program Files\PTC\Arbortext Editor\bin\x64\editor.exe" -styler -newinstance



This is the error message you might see:
