I haven't used that exact software before, but most programs are similar.

How does the controller connect to the PC? Is it a serial connection or USB? You may need to configure the serial port on the PC to work.

Controller connect to computer via IXXAT USB to CAN cable.
If I push "Connect" button without IXXAT cable the program show message:
"No suitable interfaces connected"
When IXXAT cable connect the program show message:
"Access is denied"
Exception occurred:

You got me on that one. No idea exactly what that means.

The only thing I would try is messing with the settings for CAN bit rate and CAN open node ID.
