Is it possible to log touch controller data without taking exclusive control of the rift?

I'm interested in logging touch controller data while I'm using other applications, for use in exploring some machine learning ideas. However, I don't have background in Windows programming or the Oculus SDK and it's unclear how I should proceed.
1) Will ovr_Initialize and/or ovr_Create fail if another process has an open session?
and if so,
2) The documentation suggests that the buttons on the touch controller generate xbox controller HID events (for which I can presumably register as a listener). Can I capture other touch controller events in the same way?
