No, Hearthstone requires the app to run, as will all Blizzard games once the app is fully released.

If you want to multibox you can simply enable the option to allow multiple logins in the app's options.

I'm pretty sure that's intentional, not to allow multiboxing in hearthstone.

I've been able to launch both Diablo 3 and WoW (and even SC2 if you use the sc2switcher.exe and sandbox the second one, but no point for sc2 unless you're trying to cheat ladder, just as in hearthstone) with app installed, just close it and run shortcuts with " -launch" at the end of the target line in the shortcut properties.

It must be a recent change because I know I complained on the diablo forums that I couldn't multibox due to the app launching itself when I ran the shortcut then not allowing the second one, which it seems they've changed with the last update because I tried it again a few days later. While blizzard doesn't support multiboxing (but isn't against it, so long as you buy their games for each account lol and pay subscription if applicable), I asked directly if they could make the app not launch itself when a game is run and it seems they listened, the -launch tag works once again.
