This is a very simple Adobe AIR application which will allow you to easily make duplicate installations of any AIR application.
Why would you want to do this? Well... that's up to you I guess. I have used a few AIR apps where I wish I could open multiple windows at once. Now I can.
On Windows 7/8 you may need to run the app as Administrator in order for it to have proper system access.
- Navigate to C:\Program Files\AIRAppDuplicator
- Right-click on AIRAppDuplicator.exe
- Select 'Run as Administrator'
The source is quite simple. All you have to do is copy the application directory to a new folder then edit the application descriptor and assign a new 'application ID'.
The downside to this is that the new installation will have its own application storage directory. This means that settings may not be shared between different copies.
This hasn't been widely tested. It has worked on every app I've tried so far. If you have problems contact me on Twitter @chrisdeely
