I have a 16bit VB4 app that needs to talk (using mostly string messages) to a 32bit C++ app. Windows messaging is limited (i believe?) and I am told DDE is very touchy. I have been suggested OLE but how? I don't know. I just need to get short strings between apps very quickly. What do I do?

Are the apps on the same machine? Is data flowing in both directions, or is the VB4 app exclusively sending data?

Both apps are on the same machine and data (string & Integer) is going in both directions. They will be combined in the future but time does not permitt.
