è Select Options -> Log -> Load contest at startup -> Enabled

The correct path is Options -> Load contest at startup -> Enabled (version

That is not working if you start Win-Test via Start menu in Windows and had
Win-Test added as a fixed program in the Start menu.


See https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/2651703/win-test%20start.jpg for


If you start Win-Test from the process line in the button of Windows, it can
only be started once, unless you right click on the icon and start a copy of
the program.


BTW I get not error when I start Win-Test for the second time not matter
from where I start Win-Test. I get an error on the COM port that are in use
on the first Win-Test program but nothing else.

Does anyone has a solution so Win-Test only can be started once?


1.	Start one copy of Win-Test
2.	Select Options -> Log -> Load contest at startup -> Enabled
3.	Exit Win-Test

Now if you try to start two copies of Win-Test at the same time, the second
will immediately generate a pop-up message: "filename.WT4 is already used by
another instance of Win-Test!".  Press OK and you will be able to exit the
second instance of Win-Test cleanly, via the menu: File | Close.
