Problem with ProEngineerConnect()



Hello, I have a question regarding the use of Pro-Engineer API. I am
using Wildfire 2.0, ProToolkit 2.0, and the development environment is
Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 on Windows XP (SP2).

I first have my ProEngineer program started.
Then I run my code. When ProEngineerConnect function is called:

ProError err;
ProBoolean bRandom;
ProProcessHandle hConnect;
err = ProEngineerConnect(NULL, "", "", "", PRO_B_TRUE, 5, &bRandom,

it just hangs there with hour-glass mouse cursor. The function does not
return any value at all. It seems something is blocking the connection

Could you please give me some advice on this?
Thank you~
