This looks like it's the way to get/put data from/to applications, but:

Given two applications, AppA and AppB. AppB needs to send a message
to AppA so it executes a "write to process' command. How does AppA
know that a message has been sent? On the Mac, the "appleEvent" will
be sent to AppA, but on Windows, AppA would have to be executing a
"read from process" command to be able to get the data. Also if I
have a number of Applications (AppC, AppD, AppE) that want to
communicate with AppA then I'd have to be executing 4 "read from
process" command simultaneously, how could this be implemented?
Thanks a lot
All the Best
