On 1 Virtual Machine running Windows Server 2016 with Robot version 7.91, the CDM Probe doesn't run properly. 

In the UIM IM Console, no Address or Port/PID is being displayed. 

Other identical Servers don't have issues with the CDM probe v6.00 

The cdm.log shows:

 Controller: Max. restarts reached for probe 'cdm' (command = cdm.exe)
