Installing Connection Emulator and Bandwidth Manager together

Started by Oliver

I installed the latest version of Bandwidth Manager on my PC.

Then I installed the Connection Emulator, but does not seem to work. I get an error on launch: "Unable to initialize network driver. Please reboot the system or reinstall this application."
Reinstalling does not solve the problem.

The Bandwidth Manager does not work either. Error: "Connection refused"

Unfortunately, these two products cannot co-exist on one computer as they both rely on the same network driver.

You may have to uninstall both of them, and then install the one that you need more, i.e. either Bandwidth Manager or Connection Emulator.

Sometimes you can find a solution faster if you try the forum search, have a look at the knowledge base, or check the software user manual to see if your question has already been answered.
