Losing Session Variables when launching app with pre-existing I.E. window open

P: n/a
When launching our application with Internet Explorer already opened,
but not pointing to our web server, the session variables disappear.
If you open I.E. after launching our app, it works fine. It also works
fine if you have the option set to 'Reuse Windows for Lauching
Shortcuts' checked in the I.E. properties and launch our app from a
shortcut, but it fails it you launch it from the I.E. favorites or
some other method that won't take over the existing window. What I
can't understand is what does the open I.E. window have to do with a
session id that's been issued to our app from our web server?
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Terry.

After more research, I discovered the problem occurs only when a popup
window is launched (with the session variables intact) and it launches
another popup window (losing the session variables). I figured out a
work-around for this problem. If the first popup window launches its
child popup window as a modal window instead of a normal window, all
of the session variables remain intact. I hope this may help someone
else who experiences this problem.
