nimSession - failed to connect session error code 10061 (Windows)

During startup of the Nimsoft robot, the Controller probe might report 10061 in the controller.log: 

Controller error:
Controller: Controller on 5384631-2422648 port 48000 started
Controller: Hub ATL_NMHUB01(xxx.xx.xx.xx) contact established
Controller: nimSession - failed to connect session to xxx.xx.xx.x:48001, error code 10061
Controller: nimPostMessage: sockConnect failed.


This is part of normal operations during the startup process, as the spooler has not had time to initialize yet. It happens if you turn audit on and when unable to send the audit message to the spooler, the controller will send the message directly to the hub.
