 +===== Error Message =====
 +
 +
 +
 +Double clicking on the Control shortcut and nothing is happening. ​
 +
 +
 +
 +===== Explanation of Error =====
 +
 +
 +
 +When you run Control, one of the first thing that it does is look for other copies of Control already running. ​ If so, it sends a message for the copy of Control to open a new login window and then the new copy terminates.
 +
 +
 +
 +If Control gets hung while in the process of shutting down, it may be off the screen but still running in the background. ​ When this happens and a new copy of Control is run, it may send a message to the old copy of Control running to open a new login. ​ Since the old copy is hung, nothing seems to happen.
 +
 +
 +
 +===== Severity =====
 +
 +**Normal**. User is down on that client.
 +
 +
 +
 +===== Possible Root Cause(s) =====
 +
 +
 +
 +The Control process may be hung in the background already.
 +
 +
 +
 +===== Resolution =====
