This is super. I have multiple accounts and was always wondering how this can be achieved. Nice blog you have. Found through one of the blogs on blogadda. Will this also save my chat transcripts in individual accounts?
Yes. Chat history from individual account will get saved automatically!
Imagine as you are running multiple Google Talk on multiple PC! 🙂
Nice blog Devil..
btw just you should always quote the source otherwise it could appear as ‘stealing’ which I am sure was not your intention.
Thanks for dropping nice advise… 🙂
I always cite sources wherever applicable and possible… Don’t worry about it! 🙂

Someone said it sarcastically that 90% of windows problem get solved after restarting and rest needs reinstallation! 😀

The name “C:\Program Files\Google\GoogleTalk\googletalk.exe”/nomutex’ specified is not valid. make sure path and file name are correct.
