Default Two users, separate databases. Best way to install Desktop?

Please Login to Remove!

Just talked to my customer, and they now want to use separate databases when connecting their two Blackberries to a single Windows XP PC. What is the best way to accomplish this?

Do I install one incarnation of Desktop software, assuming that Desktop will understand the separate Windows login - user profiles that this couple will be using (one for husband and one for wife)? Or do I do two installs of the Desktop software, and make each accessible solely by the individual user?

Thanks for your help, and advice.

Two Blackberrys, one PC, two separate Windows logins, should create two separate MS Outlook profiles. One install of Desktop Manager should do it. DM will ask on Intellisync setup with the BB to confirm which Outlook profile to use.

Yes, what JSanders said is true. You need to have 2 seperate log-ons for the computer. The Desktop Software is accessible from both users, as long as you set it up that way. Then when they go to sync the information, the software will ask for a user and then they can choose each one respectively.
