How do I install and develop on just one Windows 10 instance?

I have installed MultiChain on Windows 10.

Following the instructions on "Getting Started with MultiChain", I did as follows:

1) In one cmd prompt, I executed these commands:

multichain-util create chain1

multichaind chain1 -daemon

Worked fine. So far, so good.

2) In a second cmd prompt, I then execute this command:

multichaind chain1@

That fails, though, with this message:

-- copy start

MultiChain Core Daemon build 1.0 alpha 26 protocol 10006

IO error: C:\Users\Morten.Helles.EVERYMATRIX\AppData\Roaming\MultiChain\chain1\permissions.db\MANIFEST-000002: The handle is invalid.

ERROR: Couldn't initialize permission database for blockchain chain1. Probably multichaind for this blockchain is already running. Exiting...

-- copy end

What am I doing wrong?
