Is there any other way to find the PID of another instance of vvvv so I can kill the other instance without killing the “murdering” instance?
you can send the PID of each instance via osc
and kill the one you want
hei sune, here https://discourse.vvvv.org/t/7771 elias wrote a little plugin that returns the current process id. that should help.
@joreg, I seem to be too stupid to be able to compile the plugin from that thread. So if a binary version of exist I would appreciate a link to it.
can’t check right now but will let you know when a PID (self) hits the alphas.
awesome joreg :-)
if you need the compiled plugin, I managed to do it this way (with SD 4.4)
- under Tools > Project Upgrade: compiler version 5, target fw .net 4.5.1
- changed into .csproj to abs path to point to vvvv_45beta31.2_x86\lib\core\ like this, for example
- added this line into .csproj - after related error
I have also modified VVVVPIDNode.cs file like this
removing “simple” VVVV.PluginInterfaces
Hope this helps.
PID (VVVV) now in latest alphas.
