Here is a complicated, but possibly dumb question concerning adding projects together in in the IDE in order to increase performance and share memory at the same time.
I have written two distinct exe's. The first exe (file processsor) operates using three timers to perform communication between a hardware OEM proprietary ComServer and file output from the second exe. The second exe (work generator) simply
output files on hard disk so that the "file processor" can process the commands in the order given. The first exe was written as a "background processor" to the second exe in a stand-alone fashion. There is a need to communicate data between
the first and second exe that is time sensitive. The ComServer called by the "file processor" only allows one port to for communication to the hardware device that is a USB. The "file processor" is capable of extracting the data required but the existing
technologies, such as RPC, IPC are too slow and or full of pitfalls where multiple instances are created if the proprietary ComServer,
that I cannot control, is busy. [The second process is a custom 3-D graphical CAD/CAM. The first process is a machine interface. Although hind-sight is 20-20, it seemed more ideal to write this background
