Running simultaneous imports on same computer

I have a question that I suspect I already know the answer to, but want to ask anyway:

Is it a REALLY bad idea to try and run simultaneous IOM imports on the same PC, using different instances of Raiser's Edge?

 

I often run large imports that tie up one instance of RE for hours at a time, and would love to be able to open and run a second instance of RE to import other data files at the same time, but I haven't tried for fear of seriously corrupting our data. Can this be done safely? I'm running IOM version 3.3.0.17. 

 

Thanks!

The data will not be corrupted but it might lock up the database.

One solution is to get the Scheduler module for IOM which would let you run imports automatically overnight.
