This will be a real easy one I imagine but thought I'd ask anyway - I'm writing a software package that has both web and windows form components that share a common data access layer. One ofthe requirements is to manage the number of concurrent licences used on both platforms. I want to create what in old VB6 in an ActiveX Exe that stays in memory and my apps simply add the users names in and out when they log in/out. I also want to be able to return these detals from the class for admin purposes.
In VB6 I would create a ActiveX and run it then use getObject to get a reference the app. What the equivilent or best pratice to do this in .net.
Many thanks in advance
