Find handle of the AddIn application



I have following problem:

For IPC (Inter Process Communication) I need the handle of my AddIn application.

How can I get it (Me.Handle doesn't exist in the AddIn and the handle of Outlook doesn't work with IPC).

An add-in doesn't have the handle because it is just a COM object that is loaded to a host application process. You can use the Microsoft.Office.Core.COMAddIn.Object property to access your add-in (to get an active instance of Outlook you can use the GetActiveObject method of the Marshal class).
