I'm also very curious about a solution for this, which is non-trivial on 
Windows. I failed to do it with DDE (because old-fashioned DDE doesn't 
seem to be really working with current Windows versions) and using the 
"find running PD process" method requires sending an "open patcher" 
inquiry to the TCL/TK part of the already-running PD which is beyond my 
TCL/TK capabilities (not to mention interest).
