    An instance of a software

    I cannot understand the meaning of instance used as to computing?

    Here is an example sentence: OpenFOAM runs on Windows inside a virtual Docker environment. I would guess that there is already an instance of Docker running.

    Re: An instance of a software

    If you run one program twice and both copies are running at the same time, you have two instances of the program.
