ActiveQt - handling COM control/object instances

  • Hello everyone!
    I'm quite new to ActiveQt framework and I currently stuck on something elementary.

    When i invoke server (COM application) by QAxObject::setControl() and is alredy running, QAxObject acquire only pointer to its instance. But if instance is not present, it will run up by default.

    My Question is: is there any posibility to check first if server instance is alredy running before create it?
    I want to manage creating process by myself invoking server application on demand. Is this possible?

    Every help/guide will by appreciate.
