[oXygen-user] (Windows) opening up a file in different instances?

By default right-click on a file in Windows Explorer and Open in Oxygen 
should open the file in the running instance of Oxygen. If a second 
instance is started on your computer either you added the Oxygen startup 
parameter -Dcom.oxygenxml.MultipleInstances=true or there is a firewall 
or antivirus application that blocks the connections to local ports (by 
default the second instance tries to connect to a local port to see if 
there is a first running instance). In the second case you should add 
Oxygen to the list of exceptions (applications that are allowed to 
connect to a local port) or disable this blocking feature of the firewall.
