I am trying to install two clubhouse apps in my Windows 10 OS, so I have googled this and don't find out have to install two same software as parallel. I know in android there is some parallel software like this app, which you can have two same apps as parallel, but don't know which software could do it in windows. Also, I guess it could be done by installing the virtualbox and installing new windows or other OS On the pc and the installation of every software that I like, but this solution take high CPU form my pc and needs high Hard Space (memory) so I like to have better solution, if possible.

Update 1:

Based of one answer, I have tried to find the Clubdeck.Setupin.xxxx.exe file in the %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Clubdeck folder but don't find it, the folder contain are shown below:

enter image description here

So if possible, I updated the question to find out the location of the Clubdeck.Setupin.xxxx.exe file.

Thanks.

  • I think the keyword you are looking for is 'portable' and not 'parallel'. Portable apps basically save data 'locally' - from where the app executable is running. What windows app are you using for clubhouse? You didn't share a link...

  • Excuse me, my means is parallel, and the clubdeck is the win10 app . Commented Oct 7, 2021 at 16:11
  • 'parallel' is an Android concept, not a windows one - that's why I directed you to the concept of 'portable'. Clubdeck doesn't look like an open-source project, but it does look like an Electron based app. By default it's data is stored in %APPDATA%\Clubdeck, I'm pretty sure you can trick it to store data in a different location. I'll play with it, will respond with an answer if I find a solution. in the meantime, this search might be helpful.

It seems ClubDeck stores everything in %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Clubdeck. So the trick to running multiple instances is to have it store it's data elsewhere.

The process described below worked for me. Note, I am not running the installer.

First Instance

  1. Download the setup file from ClubDeck's site, currently it is Clubdeck.Setup.1.6.7.exe.
  2. Open Clubdeck.Setup.1.6.7.exe in 7-Zip.
  3. You will see that the entire app is stored inside a 7z archive named app-64.7z.
  4. Extract this file, and then extract it's content into D:\Clubdeck\app
  5. Create a batch file named D:\Clubdeck\profile1.cmd and copy-paste the content below:
    :: Change the value of USERPROFILE
    SET "USERPROFILE=%~dp0data\%~n0"
    :: Make sure the directory exists
    MKDIR "%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming"
    :: Start ClubDeck with the new environment
    start "" /B "%~dp0\app\clubdeck.exe"
    
  6. When executing the batch file, all data will now be stored under D:\_\bin\Clubdeck\data\<profile name>, effectively making ClubDeck a portable app.

Another Instance

Copying profile1.cmd to another name, for example profile2.cmd you will be able to run another instance of ClubDeck with a completely different data store.

Disclaimer

Testing this has worked out for me right now, I can't guarantee that it will continue to do so.
