I didnt know i must post code here so sry everyone :).
So my problem is next: I have two exes that need to excange data. I tried using standard ::CreateProcess() and ::GetProcAdress() functions but got errors. I presume thats becouse exes are in different processes. I cant use COM for communication heres code

#include "stdafx.h"
#include <windows.h>
#include <iostream>
using std::cout;
using std::cin;
#define EXPORT __declspec(dllexport)
typedef int(*BLA);

//typedef int (__stdcall *myFunc)(const int*);
int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[])

    ZeroMemory( &si, sizeof(si) );
    si.cb = sizeof(si);
    ZeroMemory( &pi, sizeof(pi) );

    // Start the child process. 
    if( !CreateProcess( TEXT("d.exe"),   // No module name (use command line). 
        NULL, // Command line. 
        NULL,             // Process handle not inheritable. 
        NULL,             // Thread handle not inheritable. 
        FALSE,            // Set handle inheritance to FALSE. 
        0,                // No creation flags. 
        NULL,             // Use parent's environment block. 
        NULL,             // Use parent's starting directory. 
        &si,              // Pointer to STARTUPINFO structure.
        &pi )             // Pointer to PROCESS_INFORMATION structure.
        printf( "CreateProcess failed (%d).\n", GetLastError() );

        //cout<<" Main application succeeded in loading exe!\n";

    BLA l=(BLA)::GetProcAddress((HMODULE)pi.hProcess,"a");


    // Wait until child process exits.
    WaitForSingleObject( pi.hProcess, INFINITE );

    // Close process and thread handles. 

    CloseHandle( pi.hProcess );
    CloseHandle( pi.hThread );
    char c;
    return 0;

please help. Thanks in advance!

Apparently, you didn't know you should have used code tags either, despite all the places where it gets mentioned.
