MonoCam has been working on this computer for two years with the same single cam. Now, today I get this message and no image is displayed:"CamID xxxx is playing already, you are not allowed to connect to the same IP cam in the same time." What went wrong? Thanks for the help.

The message actually means that the camera can be viewed only in one instance, therefore you will have to identify the other instance and turn it off before you can view the stream on your PC. If you have physical access to the camera, simply unplug it from its network source, this way you will disconnect the other and the camera would be available for streaming again.
