Communication between two separate VB applications

Hello Experts,

I have a VB application on one computer that zips-up some data then transmits it to another computer where another VB application unzips it and puts it where its supposed to go. I communicate between the two applications by creating and deleting text files then having the other application read for instructions. My method works well enough. My question is to know if there is a better more elegant way of communicating?

If you have the enterprise version of VB6 you can use DCOM.

JackOfPH,

I use an inet object to transmit the files. I went to the link you provided and was blown away by all the information. I really hope I can find the time to read-up on the WinInet functions. I’m not sure if it is the same thing I am currently using to transmit my files, in any event I can transmit without much problem.

JR2003,

I don't really know what DCOM is but I am going to take a look right now. Why do you think DCOM would help me?
