We just started having an issues last night where we cannot get our Control Panel program to launch either of our GC instruments. The control panel says the instruments are both "Not Connected" but we can ping them through the Windows 10 command prompt with no issues. We can also connect to our 8860GC through a web browser by typing in its local IP address. However, if we try to start an online instrument session, we immediately get an error message that says "Error Cannot launch the instrument" and the more details button gives us the following:

System.InvalidOperationException: ChemStation command returned error : Access is denied.

Does anyone know how to solve this issue?
