Description

Many power users open multiple instances of MC on their computer (one for each monitor), its better to do this than to detach a chart and move it because MC itself acts as a container.
Anyway, Its bad for 2 instances to have the same open workbook. So, users must open each instance of MC then by hand open whichever Workbooks they want in each instance. 
It would be great if you can have a command line paramater that can list the workbook names for it to autoload. Then I can have a different command line for each instance on each monitor.

Steps to reproduce this issue

see above

Create an additional MC icon on your desktop to have 2 icons of Multicharts. Make a right-click on the first one and click on "Properties". In the "Target" field you should have the the path in quotes to MultiCharts exe and paths (with a spcae and in quotes) to the workspaces you want to be opened with this insctance. The same for the second MC icon. Example:
For the first MC icon: Target: "C:\Program Files\TS Support\MultiCharts64\MultiCharts64.exe" "c:\Temp\workspace1.wsp" "c:\Temp\workspace2.wsp"
For the second MC icon: Target: "C:\Program Files\TS Support\MultiCharts64\MultiCharts64.exe" "c:\Temp\workspace3.wsp" "c:\Temp\workspace4.wsp"
