I am attempting to employ the named pipe application “Using Pipes for Messages” which I found at
I am running Borland Studio 2006 on Win 7 and need named pipes to communicate to a C# app that I am also building.
The example (bottom of page) is supposed to reverse the data sent by the Pipe-Client as a Response.
Using pipelist.exe I am able to confirm that the pipe is being established. However, when the send button is clicked it doesn’t communicate and it gives an error message “PIPE does not exist “. Pipelist.exe shows the pipe existing after the error message which seems to indicate a code problem.
Any help would be appreciated.
Perhaps someone could point me to a more complete example of using this code.
