I have 2 copies of SC: the 1st is for trading, with live data. The 2nd copy I installed later, for backtesting with historical data. I start those particular copies by clicking the individual shortcuts on my desktop. That has never been a problem for years.

Live copy: v 976
Backtest copy: v 967

Today, when I wanted to start the Backtest copy only, but both copies opened. I got error messages as well. For what it's worth, I send you a copy below. I am also not able to update the Backtest version to the newest version, as I receive these error messages instead.

Please assist. Thank you in advance.

PS. only starting the Live copy is no problem.
