 Questions for VB4 Experts: Fake MDI

Hi VB Experts,

I have a tough problem.  Please help! I need to simulate a MDI form
using In Process OLE Automation. The reason for this is the application
I am working on will be distributed out to the field.  I have to make
the application into several EXE modules and to make them independent
of each other so that whenever I make a change to one module I don't
have to recompile the entire application.  However, these EXE modules
need to interact with each other and behave like MDI childs.  Thus far,
using OLE automation I was able to create instances of a generic child
form for each EXE module. It works like a 3 tier MDI form:
MDI Parent -> Generic Child -> EXE module.

The problem I am running into is Menu.  If an EXE module has a menu
structure, it throws everything off: can't hide the generic child form,
can't make the menu show up on the MDI form... I have been searching
the Compuserve and Internet archive on VB and couldn't find any answers
although several people had posted similar questions.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
