There may be an obvious answer but I do not know why multiple workspaces
are required.

Could you share any scenario's highlighting the benefit of multiple
workspaces please ?

Thank you

Hi David,

Mr Hockings may be correct. But you should be able to install into a new
Package Group, then install your plugins, and point to your existing

Another suggestion is to export your preferences. I generally do this
before any updates, and install, and use a new work space.

I install and re-use my workspaces all the time. I only get in trouble
when I use it on a down level instance. (IE when I have my Library
List View loaded from - the panel didn't exist in 9606 so it
fails to load.)

In the mean-time I'll look into your situation David.

Any suggestions on how to diagnose?

I'd rather not have to install another instance, as the one I have is
setup the way I like it.
