Hi Bill,

It sounds like this is your scenario:
You have an app with UI that is running, and you want it to occasionally 
send/receive info to/from another invisible 'helper' app. Is that correct?

If so, can you use sockets in your environment? That would be a simple 
way to get the interaction you want between the 2 apps.

Or maybe I misunderstand your scenario.
