I made sure, that I first ran the Windows Forms application and then I started my service. As per my understanding, Windows forms application is supposed to create the "MyEventName" and windowsService should open that MyEventName. Correct me if I am wrong

I moved the same question below...I also updated it with the exception.System.Threading.WaitHandleCannotBeOpenedException

Thank you Sergey, I am trying to signal a windows forms application from a Windows Service using the named events. I understand AutoResetEvents and ManualResetEvents are mainly used for thread synchronization, but now I have a requirement to use named events to signal a Windows Forms application. After reading your comment I started looking into EventWaitHandler and modifed my code and Here it is

Windows Service Code:

public void SetSignalToClient()

System.Threading.EventWaitHandle wh = EventWaitHandle.OpenExisting("MyEventName", EventWaitHandleRights.Modify);


Windows Forms Application:
public void ReceiveSignalFromClient()
textBox1.Text = "Successful";
while (true)
EventWaitHandle wh = new EventWaitHandle(false, EventResetMode.AutoReset, "MyEventName");
textBox1.Text = "Failed";


But, my service is crashing with an exception. Please let me know if I am missing something.In Event Viewer I found the exception as: System.Threading.WaitHandleCannotBeOpenedException

Awesome Sinisa Hajnal. It worked. Thank you. I was thinking all the references would been loaded in the beginning, so why does the order so important?

Instead of making changes to my service, I used SignalR :). I created a self hosted SignalR server in my server and made my client listen to it

As I mentioned my service is RestFul WCF service which has WebHttpBinding. But from the article it looks like to broadcast events to clients, I need to change it to netTcpBinding, if I do that my Rest functionality will not work. So probably I need to create 2 endpoints one for REST and another one for SOAP. its getting little complicated....

I checked the console and I am getting an error on this line

Thanks a lot SA. I was actually referring to WCF proxy and have mentioned as proxy server which is my bad as this is the terminology used in our team, so was completely mistaken by it.
