Better option may be to go into task manager & kill your timeclock processes that are currently running!

JimsZ,

I closed the program. It is not running in task manager. Reopen the program and I get the same result.

It may also be running as a service.  Run services.msc and see if thats the case, if so, end the service and try agian.

Good luck!

Unless you can find the handle thats holding that socket open, you'll have to restart...or you can specify another port for your application to use.

pull up a command prompt and type netstat -anb and this will list all ports that are in use the progam that is using them and thier pid number.
