Hi Martin,

Where exactly should I find the create custom DB option? I can not see it in the file menu,
It should be there. Can you confirm what program you are using, as this post is the default answer for all questions regarding custom instances.
when I search in Google it says I need to make it using SQL.
No idea what google is referring to, but that is not related to our software, no SQL required :)

To open a specific instance within the app select: (well you should be able to)
FILE > NEW DB INSTANCE > instance_name

instance_name is the name of the instance / database. To reopen this instance, use the same instance_name

Additionally: Find the exe in the program files folder:
c:\program files (x86)\APP_NAME\

right click the exe
select CREATE SHORTCUT (this will probably put it on your desktop
Find the short cut and right click > PROPERTIES
In the target box you will see
c:\program files (x86)\APP_NAME\APP_NAME.exe

Change this to:
c:\program files (x86)\APP_NAME\APP_NAME.exe instance_name
WARNING instance_name must be one word
Click ok to save

Now when you double click this shortcut, the program will open in a new instance with a database specified by instance_name. This is the same instance that would load if you opened a new instance from within the app via:
FILE > NEW DB INSTANCE > instance_name

* where APP_NAME is the name of the app
