Running two versions of Notes on the same machine

If you have 2 different versions of Notes installed on the same machine (in my case 4.6.4 and 5.01) and you wish to have them both up and running at the same time, here is how you can do it: Place a short cut to notes.exe on your desktop to launch 4.6.4 Place a short cut to nlnotes.exe on your desktop to launch 5.01 Launch 4.64 first, then launch 5.01. For some reason, you cannot launch 5.01 first and then 4.6.4. If you try to, when you click the link to launch 4.6.4, it simply opens up the existing 5.01 window.
