I making a program that use a com object (I create it remote) to do some stuff.. I have no control over this comobject so I can not modify it.

When I send my call to the com-object I just return a value (Tru) That means that it has started to process my request. That's all that I get back from the com-object.

When the comobject is finnished it writes a file on the disk on the server that the comobject is installed. This file has the name  "time when job is completed.txt" contains a id number that I need to get back to my client software that I create. Does anoyne have any idea of a way to solve this. I was thinking of creating another comobject on the server that I can call but I can't see any way to match my first request with the file that is generated. (if 2 clients sends different requests that takes different time to complete there is impossible to se on the file name which one that contains the number I need"

Does anyone have any good idea how to solve this=?
