Is there any way to start second Basilisk profile?

I've downloaded portable version and had no success: the second copy used the same profile as the first (main) copy! Whereas Pale Moon lets user to start several profiles simultaneously

Try running from the command line with the -ProfileManager flag.

Great, now when I select "Load this profile by default" my first profile is stopping working. Can I force both proofiles to start separately at once?

um.. you "downloaded the portable"?... from where? We don't publish portable versions.

From Terminal in Linux I am able to run

Code: Select all

basilisk -P --no-remote foo
and

Code: Select all

basilsk -P --no-remote bar
simultaneously.
(Substitute your own profile names for "foo" and "bar".)

Ah, well, zip-packed is not the same as portable - it will still use your normal profile location.

Unless you specify to use a different one when you start.
