Im running two account on two separate monitors. My monitors are not the same size, and need different grapich setup.
Is there any propper way to do this? Should I just make an copy of the intstall folder?

Install 1st client as normal. Then create new directory (eve2 for example) and copy all contents of 1st eve install to new directory.

Create 2 short cuts ( 1 to orig eve and 2nd to eve2)

result!

Even better, create empty folder, use junctions to link EVE2 to the install folders, you will save space, and windows (if you're using that) will cache all files as part of the normal cache routine making it all faster if running both at the same time. But still have the advantage of separate 'cpp cache/settings' folders + you won't have to waste space with two installs, and upon patching "both" installs will be updated instantly when updating EVE1 folder.
