    The bank I work for is running IE 8 for security reasons and our users have 1 login to our lending software. I have managed to put together a simple batch file to launch our most used programs to start the day. The problem with 1 login is users have to use "new sessions" with IE 8 to allow multiple instances of our lending software. I want to be able to automate the selection of "new session" with the batch so that step is eliminated for staff.

    Note I cannot make registry changes to make this happen.

    My batch is set up like this:
    @echo off
    start "IE" ""C:\Program Files\Citrix\Internet Explorer"
    new sessions code here???
    start "next program" ""C:\Program Files\next program"
    start "next program" ""C:\Program Files\next program"
    start "next program" ""C:\Program Files\next program"
    start "next program" ""C:\Program Files\next program"
    and so on.

    Try...

    iexplore.exe -nomerge http://www.site.com/

    This should open an IE window that has a different session than any others already opened, not sure if this was available to IE8 or not.
