How do I send messages to a VB 6.0 application
Posted on 2006-06-16
I want to send messages back and forth between an activeX .dll (that is running under a web page via VBscript) and a free running task that will process some data for it.
Is there any intertask messaging mechanism that I can use that will work on NT, W2000 and XP (server versions too)?
I have considered the possibility of using Global memory (I have done this previously in C++) or memory files. I would prefer, however, the built in queing and "wake up" I get with standard messaging.
I would prefre to do this in VB, but C++ is an option if necessary.
I am NOT able to use .net for some rather complex system reasons.
