When I try to open a second instance of wsjt-x I get this fault. I'm really not sure of what it's trying to tell me other than it will not accept two instances.

There are instructions on how to do this in the WSJT-X manual. Don’t forget to define unique CAT and DAX ports for each instance.

There are times when WSJT-X leaves processes running expectantly. When you see this message start the Task Manager and look for WSJTX processes and "end" them and start over.

I agree with Bill, W2PKY.   I sometimes experience this error only with Win10.  I run TaskManager and end the process.   Better than rebooting your PC.
