Things are not always what they seem. Running a second copy of an application shares the executables already in memory from the first copy, so the only extra memory load is for data areas. This will typically be only 1-2mb of memory if you are just viewing another data set in the Data Editor.

Yes. I believe I can do that with 11.0.1 but it seems an extremely resource intensive way of just getting to see the structure and contents of my SAV data files. I had thought of the Excel export but again, clumsy and very resource hungry.

Surely there's an easier way or a viewer someone has written?
