Since MS decided to remove support of DDE in .NET, has anyone been able to find a way to communicate with other applications that can only use DDE?  /Atropa

No one has been able to even come close to answer yet.  DFiala13 has only posted what I stated in my initial question.  I really would like to know if anyone has been able to communicate with older applications using some other method (and hopefully not using SendKeys or something like that).  If not it would be nice to get a refund or someting?
