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?

Rahul Bansal March 14, 2008

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.

Rahul Bansal March 20, 2008

Thanks for dropping nice advise… 🙂
I always cite sources wherever applicable and possible… Don’t worry about it! 🙂

Hi rahul bhai….it worked….i dont know why but in the beginning it was saying error msg…….but after i restarted the pc it worked….thx

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

Your welcome buddy! 🙂
A friendly advice (I know its none of my business)
Don’t “play” games with your GF if you really love her. Rest is your choice! 🙂
