    Anyone know how to launch multiple instances of TWS on a MAC?

    When I click on the TWS app in the application folder it just opens the existing account.

    I cant figure out how to open multiple accounts.

    Thanks in advance.

  2. I do not use TWS but my suggestion is to make a duplicate of the app in the applications folder. Name the app TWS xxxx (existing account)

    then log in and configure each specific one.
  3. I know this is an old post, but in case someone else does a search for it, here's one way to do it. In a terminal, the 'open' command with a '-n' flag opens a new instance of an application:

    "open -n /Applications/"
  4. This is good advice, and I'll take it one step further. If you want to bypass the command terminal altogether then you can take the above command, and paste it into the Automator Command Line tool. It'll give you a desktop icon you can place in your dock or put elsewhere.
