I want to access COM alternately from two programs

Go to solution

I am writing a control program in C#
I want to start two programs and alternately access COM3 (USB address: ASRL3::INSTR).
However, in reality, you cannot operate it without closing one of the programs.


But I was able to do this before.
For instruments with USB address USB0::0xaaaa::0xaaaa::aaaaaaaaaa::INSTR.


At the beginning of the program we declare "using NationalInstruments.Visa;".
It cannot be resolved by "Dispose" of "MessageBasedSession" after communication.


What is the difference when recognized by COM?
Also, is there any way to solve this?

Better create another appC which will be the gateway for the COM port and appA and appB will communicate with appC for any transaction with COM port.
