For some reason, there seem to be a few Windows installations (a fraction of 1 percent, based on what we're seeing reported) out there that don't properly release all the storage when GenSmarts exits. This causes GenSmarts to think another copy of GenSmarts is running (it isn't) and produce a message to that effect on startup. We've updated GenSmarts to avoid using that feature of Windows, so as to bypass the apparent problem. GenSmarts will still check to verify only one copy is running at a time, but it will do the check in a different way.
The version with the fix in it is 1.0.6.08, so if you're getting this message install that version or higher. You'll find download links here:
