Control Expert Simulator only allows one connection

Hi,

 

I am running Control Expert V15 SP1. If I start the simulator I can connect to it from Control Expert and download the program to it and monitor it and Control Expert stays connected. As soon as I try to connect to the simulator from another software package eg. Vijeo Designer, then Control Expert loses its connection to the simulator. Vijeo Designer is now connected with no problems and I can simulate the running PLC, but Control Expert will not connect again while the Vijeo Designer connection is active. I have to stop Vijeo Designer first before Control Expert will connect again to the simulator. It seems as if the simulator only allows one connection at a time.
