Q

Open Lotus Notes 5 and 6 simultaneously

I have Lotus Notes 5 and 6 installed on my computer. I'd like to open them simultaneously. Would you know how to do it?
You need to launch nlnotes for each version rather than Notes. The properties for a Windows icon to launch the versions might look like the entries below which point to different directories for the versions and notes.ini files.
  C:\Lotus\Notes6\nlnotes.exe =
C: \lotus\notes6\notes.ini

  C: \Lotus\Notes5\nlnotes.exe
 =C: \lotus\notes5\notes.ini

MEMBER FEEDBACK TO THIS ASK THE EXPERT Q&A:

I tried this and it didn't work unless I enclosed the command lines in quotes as follows:

C:\Notes6\notes.exe "=
C:\Notes6\notes.ini" and 
C:\Notes\notes.exe "=
C:\Notes\notes.ini"
