Public Shared Function GetInstances () As IList(Of AppInstance)
The collection of all running instances of the app.
Whereas the Windows.ApplicationModel.AppInstance.GetInstances method in the Windows OS only returns app instances that have explicitly registered for multi-instance redirection using the FindOrRegisterInstanceForKey method, this method in the Windows App SDK returns a list of all running app instances that have called any AppInstance method. Typically, an app instance will call AppInstance.GetCurrent, and this does two things: it adds the current instance to the list that will get returned by the GetInstances method, and it returns the current instance.
