Unfortunately I see no way.

Nobody implemented that mechanism for WIN32. It is not very difficult to
do. I remember that XMMS in the old days was using a socket mechanism to
check that an instance was running and if it was the case, it was simply
sending a command over the socket interface.

Ekiga can not do that (yet). But Michael Rickmann is doing a lot of work
on the win32 build nowadays.
