Thats what the "venueClient._IsValid()" used to be for in AG2 i.e. it  
would check whether a VenueClient was actually running or not (and  
cause one to be started up if necessary). However the  
"venueClient._IsValid" doesn't work in AG3 and leaving that line in  
results in an attempt to launch a new VenueClient whether its needed  
or not, causing a new error if one is already running.

You could take your pick of which behaviour you prefer; either leave  
that line in if you'll always be starting out with no VenueClient  
running already, or leave that line out if you're happy to always  
have a VenueClient running already.

Maybe a bugzilla report will result in a working VenueClient._IsValid 
() in the next release?
