Launching Rumba 9.2 sessions in seperate windows

Jump to solution

Currently when I launch Rumba I launch it from a "Sessions.rdps" file that starts up four Rumba sessions (session1.rsdm, session2.rsdm) etc. Using this method means i have a single Rumba application that has the four sessions inside the single application window, under their own tabs.

Can anyone tell me how I could launch the four sessions but in their own individual Rumba application window? I've noticed that if I launch "C:\Program Files (x86)\Micro Focus\RUMBA\System\RumbaPage.exe" then I can launch this multiple times individually as seperate Windows, however if i append the path of a session to this command and run it more than once, the sessions are all opened as tabs under a single Rumba application Window. I've also tried a simple DOS batch file as below, but this also launches the sessions under individual tabs on the same Rumba application Window. How do I get all four to launch seperately?

start "S1" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Micro Focus\RUMBA\System\RumbaPage.exe" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Micro Focus\RUMBA\Sessions\S1.rsdm"
pause
start "S2" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Micro Focus\RUMBA\System\RumbaPage.exe" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Micro Focus\RUMBA\Sessions\S2.rsdm"
pause
start "S3" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Micro Focus\RUMBA\System\RumbaPage.exe" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Micro Focus\RUMBA\Sessions\S3.rsdm"
pause
start "S4" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Micro Focus\RUMBA\System\RumbaPage.exe" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Micro Focus\RUMBA\Sessions\S4.rsdm"
pause

I resolved this myself, by editing some settings in the "RumbaPage.exe.config" file.

Please execute the following steps in order to open each Rumba session in a new window:

Click on Options > Rumba options -> Tabs

Disable "Enable new Tabs" and "Always show tabs" options

Now enable "Allow multiple Rumba instances" and "Open session in a new window" options

Press OK and restart Rumba window.

Now all your sessions will open in its own separate window.

That's correct because Rumba 7.3 does not have Tabs.
Tabs has been introduced in 2009 into RUMBA 8.0.

Hi Amelias,
the default is to open Sessions in TABS in the same Workspace.
You can change the default setting under Options -> Rumba Options
