Using IPC channels and .NET Framework 2.0 to communicate between processes
Source: Zach Smith
Many C++ developers are used to using named pipes to communicate from one application to another. Unfortunately the .NET Framework does not supply an easy way to access named pipes. With the introduction of .NET Framework 2.0, Microsoft has included a new remoting channel that is built on named pipes which developers can use for interprocess communication. Zach Smith explains how to use these new channels. A sample solution is also provided that demonstrates the concepts described in this download.
