Please Close All Instances of Alteryx


I have a virtual machine running Windows Server.  On the vm I am trying to upgrade my version of Alteryx Server. I downloaded the installer and tried to run it, but got an message telling me to close all instances of Alteryx.  The thing is, I have no instances open.  What should I try next?  Thanks


The issue is likely that the Alteryx Service is running.


To stop the Alteryx Service you should do the following; 


1. Open the Windows Services Manager 

2. Find "Alteryx Service" -> Right-click and STOP the service

3. Try running the installer now


Let me know if this solves the conflict issue.



Thank you ZacharyM.  I went into the Task Manager and disconnected everyone (after notifying them beforehand).  Alteryx Server is now installing.
