I have a requirement where my application throws an event, which I want third party applications be able to access... Which I assume is what "interop" means.
I've seen the Interop Forms Toolkit... but that looks like something for VB6.
Which approaches can I take to do this? So far, I only have sockets in mind (i.e. my app creates a socket server, all other third party apps connect to that socket, and listen for data written on it). But isn't there something "else"? Purpose-made? I've
seen/read COM alot... but apparantly that's old, and not very user friendly.
