hi,

you can use PostMessage function. in the VC++ program you can choose a CWnd ( for example a CDialog ) and get its HWnd . after that use this code :

postMessage(VCProgramHandle : HWND , WM_TestMessage : cardinal , wParam , lParam );

also you can use FindWindow API function for finding your VC++ program Window Handle ( the HWND ) in your Delphi program directly.

for example :

Hwnd := FindWindow('CWnd','MyMainVCPPDialogName');

postmessage(Hwnd,...);

I hope it can help you.
