Hi there. I'm trying to pass data from one vb6 application currently with winsock to update variables over a network connection on another vb6 application. This is getting lengthy and slows the performance of my application down, and this is a very critical application that is going to run a factory with PLC's. Is there another way? I have seen a ad-on which I downloaded. It's called Edelwise Basic Variables. It is nearly what I'm looking for, but variables are limited to the machine. Any solution?
