Is it that much more difficult? The GUID for the message in that article should be used as name of the mutex in the MSDN approach. The article details possible pitfalls of easy solution. The article on MSDN seems to be somewhat updated to not take all problems. Try it out. If you find the MSDN apporach simpler and it works use it. Or read a bit the article on flounder and see whether J.M.Newcomer already knows about shortcommings.
