Most likely a timeout issue if the machine is very busy:
- Explorer launches QCAD when a file is double-clicked
- QCAD checks if another instance of QCAD is already running by trying to contact the other instance. This may time out if the operating system is very busy or QCAD has not been used for a while and needs to wake up first.
