Break up Large Apps

If you have a large app, consider breaking it down into smaller apps. Use one main EXE that calls the others and DDE to provide communication. When a sub-app opens, open a DDE link to the main app. You can use scripting to enable the apps to communicate with each other to pass data or start processes. Doing this has several advantages including lower memory requirements and lower resource usage. One big advantage: Because your app is composed of multiple EXEs, Windows gives each piece its own share of the time slices, so your app runs faster.
