Pop-Up on Program Start re: appears you are running a second instance

Recommended Posts

When I start the DAQFactory (v. 17.1 build 2309) program (on my Windows 8.1 laptop) I get a pop-up message that says:  

It appears that you are trying to run a second instance of DAQFactory on this computer....

I uploaded a screen capture of the pop-up message.

I checked Task Manger (before and after I had started the program) and this is the only instance.

Is there anything I need to fix to get rid of this start-up message?   Perhaps I didn't close it down properly and there are some stale lock files I should delete?

Inside DAQFactory, go to File - Preferences and check the box that says "Disable 2nd instance check".  That will get rid of that window.

That worked.  The bogus pop-up message at start-up no longer appears.

Out of curiosity, why was it popping up when there was only one instance of DAQFactory running?  Is this a known bug or is there something in my own setup that may have been causing this message to appear?

Its a known issue with some machines.  It has to do with the license file and only started cropping up in force recently.  Really we will likely remove this feature in new releases and eliminate the popup altogether.
