CreatePort() and RapaGUI (on Windows)

Post by PEB »

I'm getting an error when I try to use CreatePort() in a RapaGUI program compiled for x64 Windows.

The error says: "Unable to open window!"
And the function that causes it is CreatePort()

Any ideas?

That's also defined behaviour. IPC currently only works with Hollywood's default display handler and not with plugins that replace this display handler with a custom one (e.g. RapaGUI, GL Galore, RebelSDL).

Code: Select all

- New: RapaGUI now supports inter-process communication via Hollywood's CreatePort() and SendMessage()
  functions; this is especially useful on macOS and Linux where Hollywood doesn't have inbuilt IPC support
  yet; you can just use RapaGUI now to workaround this Hollywood limit
