My advice is that you need to run Odoo from sources, then create many config files as instances you need, then execute Odoo from the command line using "--config C:\path\to\particular\config" varying the config file for every instance and in every config file you need to vary the option xmlrpc_port to launch that particular instance in a different port from the others

I'd like to thank you Axel, you gave me a piece of information I sought behind much time. I upvoted your answer

hello there, i've resolved the problem.

So to start running multiple instances of odoo8 on the same machine follow these steps:
1- asuming you've already one instance of Odoo installed, so either you copy the folder "Odoo 8.0-xxxxxx" (which is in C:\programs files\) into another different folder, let's say "Odoo 8.0 copy" OR you download and install a new instance of it.
2- the main thing here is to give different values of ports numbers in the .config file of the second instance (Odoo 8.0 copy)

3- then you have to create a new windows service which will be assoctiated to the newly created instance:
     - run command prompt and run the following command: sc create service_name binPath= "C:\program files\Odoo 8.0 copy\service\win32_service.exe"

PS: notice that there must be a blank space after the equal sign (=) in the command line

that's all,, the newly service will be created in the registry and you can launch it from here: Start >> Services >> service_name

This answer accomplish the Axel's one. Axel's answer to run from source, you to run from the runtime version. Thx for you both

I still get a interval server error

make sure you gave two different paths for data directory in openerp-server.conf. the default value for data_dir is like this: data_dir= C:\Users\user_name\AppData\Local\Openerp SA. For the second instance give a different path such as: data_dir= C:\Users\user_name\AppData\Local\Odoo-2
