Please read this article which should explain it all... It is important to note that there are some programs which will not allow you to open multiple instances.

IMHO, if shift-clicking your program icon doesn't open another instance, it's just one of those exceptions. It's simple enough to check and no harm should come from trying.

Last, since your program concerns work, I suspect it's a commercial program. We do not allow mention of commercial programs, so it's best if you keep that to yourself.
