Solid Edge ST8 Viewer does not allow me to open second file

Hi,

 

I'm testing the free Solid Edge ST8 Viewer at home. If I try to open a second file from the File/Open dialog, I get an error message. If I rightclick a SE file in Windows Explorer and choose Open with > Solid Edge Viewer it works fine (blue mark).

 

I've never seen this problem in ST7 or earlier versions. 

 

Can somebody replicate this? Is this a new restriction and regarded Works as Designed?

OK thanks, works fine. A little counterintuitive though.
