    Hi,

    is there a way to let two programs communicate with each other?
    e.g. the one program sends a message to the other to refresh himself and the like.

    On the same pc, you can send windows messages (even ones you define) usually beginning with "WM_". Across a network (or on the same pc) you can use sockets. Winsock is a poor implementation of a socket, but there's your solution. Or the Internet Transfer control (Inet).
    Check the Internet (or General) forum or search for SendMessage or PostMessage API's.

    Have a look at raising & sinking events in VB, you could create an ActiveX exe with a singleton class which both programs connect to thus enabling communication. If you are really stuck I can do up an example.
