    i have a doubt in C++. lets asume A.exe is running and it has two functions A() and B(). i have another program B.exe, which needs to call some functions say A() in A.exe (which is already running).

    how can we achieve this, what concept we need to use??

    if u have some sample code, or tutorial or forums link, give me those reference.

    I guess that's not possible, you may use DLLs (Dynamic Link Library) to achieve the task.

    OLE can do this.

    Else you can create a "chat" between 2 prgms. via a file, just like chat servers do for people.
