Function to distinguish 2 programs that share the same .exe name?
I don't know where to ask this so might as well do it here.
I have 2 video games that use the same engine, so when I launched them they both have the same name (ex: engine.exe) but they both have different title name of course. The application tracker treats them as the same thing and lump their hours up together. Is there a way to separate them somehow?
You could use autotags like Alexander suggested.
ManicTime used to work this way, we used whole path to distinguish apps, but then the problem was then when for example new Firefox came, and it was in a different folder it created a different entry, so you were stuck with two Firefoxes for example. Then we decided to just use the executable for apps and it came in handy on the server as well, where you can it shows a single Firefox from multiple machines.
If this gets some more support, we might add some way where you could tell ManicTime to make an exception for specific apps.

Use auto tag and the directory / path as criterium to distinguish between the games. Or use docs used by each to distinguish.
