I am looking at redeveloping a previous app written in Delphi 5, due to user requests for certain modifications, which was previously in a single EXE file.
I have thought about totally redeveloping the app, and creating it in a modular format, ie. a different EXE file for each of the modules, which are called by a MAIN MENU Module.
As I have not done this before, there are a number of questions I need to ask.
1. Would this be the best way to do this, ie. 1 exe for each of the modules, about 7-8 in all ?
2. Advantages, disadvantages, problems etc. with doing it this way ?
3. How do I check if an EXE is open, and therefore close it if needed ?
Any alternatives ?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
