Actually I have solved the problem by using a setting of 0 as Ian suggested.
My Vedit is configured with instance=1, so files normally open in a single instance.
I have configued ZTreeWin Editor to "start c:\vedit\Vpw.EXE"
I have configued ZTreeWin Alt-Editor to "start c:\vedit\Vpw.EXE -s2"
This is actually a better system even if I didn't have any problems.
This means that from outside ZtreeWin and inside ZtreeWin using E command for edit which is set to "start [path]\vpw.exe", multiple files are opened in the same instance.
On the few occassions when I wish to open an additional file in a separate instance of Vedit, I use ZtreeWins's Alt-E command for alternate editor which is set to "start [path]\vpw.exe -s2", which opens that single file in a new instance.
I haven't been able to replicate the problem lately using W2K SP4, so I dont think it is a VEDIT issue. I apologise for suggesting it may have been :-)
