While launching Datamaker, I am receiving the following error message: A licensing violation has occurred- the application will stop!

The license violation is not from the license itself. It is actually complaining about how you are accessing TDM. If there are multiple TDM instances being used by the same user at the same time, you will get this error message.


CA Test Data Manager (TDM)- Datamaker


Make sure that you are only using one TDM instance at a time.
