Very Cool!

Thanks for your prompt answer.

Please send me the patch.

I will surely test it!

Just one question on your answer, my two apps are called DISP.EXE and PDV.EXE

Is one of them 16 and the other 32 bit ?

If I recompile both of them to 32 bit or 16 bit, should DDE work?

I can also try that.

Frankly, I didn´t even know that one was 16 and the other 32 bit.
