Helping a newbie

Have a few questions, please excuse the ignorance of a newbie

1. I am using mGalaxy as a front end. The issue I have is when using win-uae when I click on the game in mGalaxy, it just takes me to the win-uae interface. I did have everything loading from mGalaxy. But that stopped. How do I get the game I want to load up from the mGalaxy interface
2. Can you have multiple copies of win-UAE in your computer. I want to use a different one for:
1. Commodore Amiga
2. Commodore CDTV
3. Commodore CD32
But when I load them in different directories and click on them the configuration files change to the current one.
Is there some way I can use one copy of win-UAE for the three systems I have listed here.
I have tried to use win-UAE for the Amiga and the use FS-UAE for the other two. But I can not get the games to eve load into FS-UAE from mGalaxy.

I have to manually click on the file search in FS-UAE and load the game from the file interface.
I have been working at this for days, and have not gotten very far.
I just want to be able to load Amiga, CDTV, and CD32 from mGalaxy.
ANy help would be greatly appreciated.

I have no idea what mGalaxy is or why you'd use it? Is it a frontend?

My answers below are when purely using WinUAE only.

1) With WinUAE you can skip loading the GUI and start a configuration immediately. Just set all your options / settings, and save as configuration file. Now you start WinUAE like this:

winuae -f "<configuration file>.uae" -cfgparam use_gui=no
2) You don't need 3 copies of WinUAE. Again just create 3 configuration files; one for Commodore Amiga, Commodore CDTV and Commodore CD32. You can base these off "Quickstarts" if you don't know what settings / options to select.

Yes. Put winuae.exe in each place and create an empty winuae.ini besides each.

But why would you want to? You can have different configurations with one copy of WinUAE.
