application communication

P: n/a
Hi!
Is there any easy way to send a command(or a number/whatever) to a running
application?
That's the situasion:
I wrote a windows service and installed it on the computer. And I wrote a
normal program that starts this service and send some commands to it (by
ServiceCommandManager) and the service does something...
Now I need to send a replay to my program that the service was succesful/or
not. How to do that?
If you have any ideas about communication between two running programs it
also should help...
Any ideas?

Hi zurg,

The only thing I can say is, "Take a look for remoting on msdn"
