Overview of the Smart Tools for WinCC
Several requirements must be fulfilled in the configuration of your Windows environment in order to enable multi-user operation of WinCC. If the settings required for this are not correct, there is no guarantee that WinCC functions error-free in multi-user mode or whether it is at all possible.
In the event of a fault in the connection for the "SIMATIC S7 PROTOCOL SUITE", error codes are created in hexadecimal format in the file "SIMATIC_S7_PROTOCOL_SUITE_xx.LOG".
With WinCC V7.0 SP3 and higher you can select "WinCC Client" during installation. There are multiple aspects to be considered when using these licenses.
Your connection to the controller is established, but the tag values are not displayed. They have Quality Code 4C (initialization value).

You can use the Windows API function "FindWindow" to bring a window to the foreground with a C script.

You would like to upgrade your SIMATIC WinCC software to SIMATIC WinCC V15 and you are already in possession of SIMATIC WinCC flexible 2008, SIMATIC WinCC V7.0 or higher or an earlier version of SIMATIC WinCC (TIA Portal).
Lifebeat Monitoring monitors servers, clients and automation devices. Usually the Lifebeat Monitoring runs on a central WinCC client. It provides a view of Lifebeat objects belonging to a project and of the automation devices and operator stations of other projects. For this all the plant sections must be connected to one common network.
In order to have the Technical Support answer a service request precisely and without having to ask for more information, a description as precise as possible of the unclear issue is necessary.
In some special cases, depending on the configuration of your system, there might be synchronization problems when starting WinCC and other applications. You avoid this by delaying the start of WinCC.

Most probably you have not installed the right license for your software version.
