Error 'Application is already running'

  • This message is displayed if you try running multiple Quantowers in parallel on the same computer or you have closed Quantower a few seconds ago and it did not finish closing yet. In 20 seconds or sooner Quantower can be started again.

  • If even after a few minutes the platform fails to start, go to the Task Manager. Press Ctrl+Shift+Esc to open the Task Manager with a keyboard shortcut or right-click the Windows taskbar and select “Task Manager.” Find the process with the name "Starter", select it and click on End task.
