800xA Testing using Soft Controller
We are having set-up as below:
# One remote PC is available with Control Builder and Soft Controller software
# Min. 4 people are working simultaneously on same remote PC using their respective user ID
#There are total 4 controllers on same project
Now all 4 people want to simulate, download and go on-line at respective controller.
Can any one please suggest whether it is possible to do same with current set-up? Can all 4 people work together and test rescpective controller in this scenario? If yes, what is the procedure for same.

No, it is not possible because only one copy of Control Builder process can running on the same computer (disregarding on user account).
In case you want to parallelize work of 4 engineers (let them simultaneously test applications in CBM) they must work on independend workstations.
Or run 4 virtual machines (1 VM per user) but then the remote computer must be powerful enough.
I think it is not good idea to use same PC, because you have only one Control Builder, and control builder only support one instance open. it is sure when another user try to open appear one error message that indicate that already there is one cbm open.
in this case you can install compact control builder in another PC and test your program, if i suppose is for training purpose.
As more than one instance of CBM isnt allowed for a user in a PC, you can explore the option of installing CBM and softcontroller on the main system nodes and do 4 remote desktop sessions ( 4 people are working simultaneously on same remote PC using their respective user ID so i assume machines is not an issue).
Installing CBM on main system doesnt have any major impct on your system anyway.
