Why Am I Receiving the Error Message "Another Instance of Update Service Is Already Running"?

Primary Software:
Primary Software Version: N/A
Primary Software Fixed Version: N/A
Secondary Software: N/A

Why do I receive the following error message while attempting to manually launch NI Update Service?

Update Service will complete silent periodic software updates in the background in a manner that is not visually apparent while your computer is in use. Additionally, when NI Update Service is closed, it can occasionally take awhile for the processes governing the service's execution to end.  The error pictured above will be generated if you manually launch Update Service before this background process comes to a complete end.

The error message will also appear if you manually launch two consecutive instances of Update Service due to the first instance of the Service you launched currently running.
