We are looking at implementing something similar to "winpopup" notification.
Basically, we want to notify users immediately of mission critical problems.
Our client base is mostly Windows 98.
We have thought about having the users run winpopup, but they could
"accidently" close it, so we ruled that out.
I bought Mabry's mslot component, but it is a 16-bit app. We would like to
go with a 32-bit app if possible.
Has anybody been able to implement a 32-bit mailslot solution in a Windows
9X environment using VB (if somebody has C++ code to share, that would be
great). If not, if anybody knows of another solution (using pipes, tcp/ip
broadcast, etc.) that they have used, would you be willing to share it with
Thanks in advance,
