I'm trying to get my application and another application both running on the same computer using one IQConnect. The problem is that the 2nd app can never register since IQConnect seems to only allow one connection at a time. Does anyone know how I can detect if IQConnect.exe is already running so I know whether or not to call the register function?

Thanks,

Earik

The easiest way is try to connect to the IQconnect socket. If its not there, then call the register function.

The only problem which you should expect then, when the 1st application will be closed, it will close IQConnect too because it doesn't know about your 2nd application.

Yes, I've noticed that. The one that called registerclientapp has control over all the others because it gets to turn iqconnect off. Any way to detect how many connections iqconnect has got going at a time?

As far as I know it is not possible.
