Opening multile programs using Shotgun Create occurs error

I opened the program using an shotgun. If you try to open the houdini in the assigned task, one program opens, but if the houdini tries to open another houdini in the open houdini will occur. If you want this error to go back to normal, you need to turn the shotgun off and on again. There are times when an artist has to turn on several programs at once, but it’s a big problem right now.
