ChildProcesses is a child process management library for the .NET Framework.
It allows to create child processes, and provides bidirectional extendable interprocess communication based on WCF and NamedPipes out of the box.
Child and parent processes monitor each other and notify about termination or other events.
Child processes are an alternative to AppDomains when parent must continue if the child crashes.
It is also possible to mix 32Bit and 64 Bit processes.
