Dear Experts,

Is there an API to get a local memory address handle from a Window Handle for an external exe?

I am assuming you are on Win32.  The answer is no, unfortunately.  Because of the separate memory space for the external exe, your program cannot get access to any memory local to that external exe.  The only way to share memory is to set up a memory mapped file, for which there is ample documentation in the help files.  The other way to communicate across process boundaries, of course, is via rpc (remote procedure calls), which is another can of worms altogether.

Hope this helps.
