How to open 2 instances of Microsoft Project 2010 for dual monitors

I have 2 MS Project 2010 files that I need to compare and work on side by side. I am running Windows 7 with dual monitors. I would like to open seperate instances of MS Project so I can have 1 project file per monitor.

I know with Excel I can open a new instance of the application and view two spreadsheets in seperate monitors, but I cannot do the same thing in Project. I can open one instance and tile multiple files within that single instance. But I'd prefer to open 2 instances rather than trying to view them tiled in a single instance.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

It is not possible to have multiple instances of Project. IMO, the only way is to open both files and arrange the windows side by side.
