There are a number of options.  Generic IPC techniques such as Pipes and sockets and DDE are discussed here:
   Interprocess Communications
If your GUI app is going to start the console app, then you can also pass data to it via the command line when you start it.  The values on the command line are available in your main() fn as the argc[] array strings.
