Hello All,

I have two C# WinForm applications. When BOTH apps are running, I would like to use reflection in App A to get and set information in App B. I can do this already if App A uses refelection to load the App B assembly. Is there anyway to do the same if App B is already running?

Also, when I use reflection in App A to Load the App B Assembly, is App B still running in its own process? I don't see it in task manager, but I do see it on the desktop

Both App A and App B are forms
Windows 7 Pro 64

Thanks very much,
