If an error occurs when an IPC event starts, the parent process will go into an error state. Examining the error in the ErrorLog shows that the error occurred with IPCSend. When the process instance is opened with the process management tool in K2 for Visual Studio the process management tool does not call the RepairIPCError method for repairing the error but will instead open the process KPRX.
