Open new instance of 3d max?

As the title says, is it possible to open a new instance of 3dmax via maxscript. I have found other posts from past asking the same but with no real answer. Just wondered if it was possible?

Many thanks!

Barigazy, worked perfectly.

Barigazy, worked perfectly. Thank you very much. I had tried shellLaunch "3dsmax.exe" "blah blah blah.max" but nothing. Always that last little bit that catches me out. Thanks again!

Try this

shellLaunch (GetDir #maxroot + "3dsmax.exe") ""
