Google Chrome Profile Monitor Locations

I am trying to setup monitor locations for Google Chrome, but it doesn't seem to be working if I want to specify which Google Chrome Profile I want. I have a Chrome profile using my personal email address, and one using my work email address. My personal Chrome profile has all of my personal bookmarks and passwords sync'd between my home computer, and my work computer, and my work profile has all my work stuff. I have both profiles saved as shortcuts on my desktop so I can access both easily, and I want to setup rules so that certain windows, like my work email, or personal browser, open on certain monitors.

When I try to create a Window Location rule, I'm not sure how to implement the profile feature. If I use the shortcut target as the application when creating the rule, it doesn't work at all. It does seem to work when I use the default "chrome.exe" as the application, but that applies the window location rule to any Google Chrome window, not only the specified profile.

Hopefully this makes sense. I've played around with the rules, but nothing seems to be working. Thanks.

Unfortunately there's nothing unique about the different Chrome Profile windows that DisplayFusion could use to figure out where they should go. The process path and command line are the same, because the command line parameters aren't kept by Chrome when the window is created. There's nothing in the window class or window title that would uniquely identify a specific Chrome profile either

Is this still the case? Any way to get target a chrome window based on the profile?
