Default How do I run two instances of Prime 95?

I was told that with the Core Two Duo I need to run two instances of Prime 95 at once with the torture test to check after OC'ing. However I cant. When I double click the Prime 95 icon after the program is already running it just opens a new window that replaces the current one. It wont let me run two instances of the program. So how do I load down both CPU's 100% to check for stability?

Its not working. I typed exactly the following into run:

"C:\prime95"

and I tried

C:\prime95


But neither are working. They open the program but when I try to open it a second time it just closes the first instance.

HOWEVER, the first time I tried it, it worked. But now that I restarted my computer it wont work anymore.

I also tried entering in the following:


C:\prime95 -A1

and

"C:\prime95" -A1

once again they open the program, but will only keep one instance open.
