sorry if this has been asked before.
What is the cleanest (read: platform-independentest :-) way to communicate
with another instance of the same program.
What I want to achieve is the following: my app can handle multiple windows,
so when the user re-launches another instance of the application, it should
just notify the already running instance to open a new window, and exit
(that is, unless he uses a specific command line switch, but that's another
Sounds simple enough. However, all examples I could find in the Internet
involve either some nasty pInvokes or even ghastlier things like
communicating via a Port or worse.
There must be some simple and elegant way to achieve this. Any ideas?
Thanks a lot in advance
