Menu> Start/Exit > Uncheck Only one instance on both.  ???
Each must have a different port.
Probably be easier if they were in different directories, and
forwarding 2 different ports is necessary if you use a router.

don't forget when you uncheck "Only one instance on both", you have to save options else this can't work when you lauch second instance of hfs ;)

with multi-instances actived, the drag and drop of files create a new intance of hfs every time ;D

true IF you are talking about dropping files over hfs.exe,
dropping over hfs window doesn't open a new instance.

it happens also if you use the "add to hfs" command.

HFS will automatically pick up a different port for other instances if you didn't set one manually at first.

indeed on recent HFS versions you get this error message:
The auto-update feature cannot work because it requires the "Only 1 instance" option enabled
