I wrote both of them and they are both running on a local machine. Let me see if I can explain a little better.
The main program 'MyProgram.exe' can be ran by a user at anytime. They will run this program and use its interface. I have another program, 'MyManager.exe'. They are both writen in VC++ using MFC. 'MyManager' uses COM to connect to 'MyProgram'. However, I do not want 'MyManager' using the instance the user loaded, but to always use its own instance, so I need it to start its own instance if one is already running. Problem: When 'MyManager' does the CreateDispatch, it will always connect to 'MyProgram' of the instance that was started first. If there are no instances of 'MyProgram' running it will start a new one.
I want to be able to control what instance of 'MyProgram' to connect to when calling CreateDispatch. I have looked into the ROT, but it seems to require the IUnknown, but I do not know how to get that for a process that is already running.
I can have multiple instances of 'MyProgram' running, but I want to control which instance is used for 'MyManager'.

I can get the ProcessID of all instances of 'MyProgram', but I do not know how to get its IDispatch or IUnknown, so that I can use that to have 'MyManager' connect. I don't want to use the default functionality of 'OleRun' called from the CreateDispatch.

Thanks for helping.
