Hardware Already In Use Error

Post by ttatakis » Mon 21. May 2018, 15:33


I have a Win10 laptop that is telling me that the "Hardware is already in use by another program" when I try to run PCANExplorer 5 or PCAN View. As a result, I can not change things or monitor the bus. Are there any lock files I can delete or other remedies I can take to fix this problem?

Thanks in advance.
