I'll be honest in saying I have no idea now.... i'd wait for either Sarge or Markham to respond on this.
it'll be safe to assume then that all attempts with working with the config file failed miserably? hmmm... Completely stumped now
only suggestion now from me is to start over... had to do this a few times too, but in the end got the program to work...
starting multiple instances is kinda weird... you dont want to start each one at the same time. you got to do it in an order, like start first one once loaded start another and so forth..
I did make a bat file that will execute each instance of cd in turn, this may solve your startup errors it did for me about 90% of the time
here's the code...
start C:\"Circle Dock4"\"CircleDock.exe"
start C:\"Circle Dock3"\"CircleDock.exe"
start C:\"Circle Dock2"\"CircleDock.exe"
start C:\"Circle Dock1"\"CircleDock.exe"
use this code in a txt file and save it with the extension .bat and it should work... you'll have to change each file to your cd locations
hope that helps
as for the password error I got no idea, sorry
