Sorry for the confusion: Actually I wasn't suggesting that you use a socket to
communicate between two applications. Although if you want to be able to run
the C++ stuff on a different machine or retrive the data from more than one
application then this is a good move. If all you want is Labview to talk to
another thread in the same application then use a DLL with a separate thread.
There is no reason to make a socket if you can use a DLL instead unless you
need to be able to connect to the DLL from more than one app or from an app on
a different machine.
The only reason I mentioned the socket stuff was as an example of something I
needed to run a thread in a DLL to accomplish. I guess I ramble a bit too
