Chrome: Can't open another Chrome browser after inserting "-pinned-tab-count=x" in target address under Chrome Shortcut icon

I use Win XP. I'm using Google Chrome Dev Ver:4.0.249.30. I followed a guide as to how to pinned my tabs on Google Chrome permanently.

"You are right, I should have posted the problem on Google Chrome forums, but I only thought about it after posting my thread here at superuser.com :(

However, I found the answer to my problem, thought I share it here in case there are others like me.

The trick is, under the target address in the Chrome shortcut icon, you should only have the following:

""C:\Documents and Settings\XXX\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe"" --pinned-tab-count=3

As you can see, I've not placed the website addresses in the target address. Instead:

A. Click on the Wrench icon on Chrome,
B. Go to Options.
C. Under the Basics tab, the section that says On Startup, tick Open the Following Pages:
D. And proceed to enter in the website address that you wish to have permanently pinned on Google Chrome.

Doing it this way solves the problem of preventing me in opening additional Chrome browsers."
