using two programs to communicate with one device

Is it possible for me to write two programs that will communicate simultaneously with a single device (34972A) while scanning?

What I want to do is:
1. have Datalogger Pro scan channels, log data and provide basic event based scripting and reporting
2. have custom code in a C# app (SCPI over VISA) that will read some data values (the totalizer which represents RPM) and write another value depending (an analogue voltage out that controls power supplied to motor)

I've tried to do this but so far it seems to kill both apps. Before I try harder, could someone let me know if this is even possible?

Thank you in advance.
