  • I don't see any reason it won't work, but you need to do your own IPC - the Visual Workflow Tracking sample has no built-in support for it, in case that is what you are wondering.

  • That may prove difficult- you can start with the following SDK sample:

    You'll need to somehow obtain the Workflow ID from the running workflow (you'll need to use a custom activity to emit this, since it isn't exposed by default), and then use that in your visual solution to retrieve the correct tracking records to drive the display.
