Multible SimConnect clients

Recommended Posts

If you have more than one Simconnect client, do they need to have unique names for each one?Example, I use VB6, and I open SimConnect client with "SimConnect1.Open "FSCSimConnect", 0"The FSCSimConnect is the OCX I am using to interface with SimConnect."SimConnect1" is the name I use as a client name. So if I have more than one client do I need to change the client name to something like "SimConnect2" etc. ?Thanks Dave

>If you have more than one Simconnect client, do they need to>have unique names for each one?I don't know, but I would seriously doubt it. In fact, except in certain circumstances (where it would cause a crash I believe) you don't even have to give a name.After all, each Open client is assigned an ID/Handle and from then on the name is irrelevant. Even private current data is assign a name by the creator at the time of the request, and if that isn't unique SimConnect says so.Anyway, if you have a client program which allows itself to be run twice it would be easy enough to try, wouldn't it?RegardsPete
