I am running a sub progam (vb.net Windows Form compiled to exe) inside a parent MDI program using system.reflection so that the separate exe looks like its just another screen in the main program.

Is there a way I can update a text box in the main calling exe from code in the sub program?

Not sure if it is worth redesigning your child applications, but you could create a base DLL that your children apps would inherit from.  In the base DLL you could define a set of events that could be overridden. In your parent app, you could use reflection to auto discover those events and wire them to handlers in the parent app.  

It would take some redesign of your children app, but would get you where you wanted to be.
