How would I do this? Should I use TCP/IP with localhost or is there a better way?

This is what I want to do:
I have a WinNT service running in memory that contains a database. I have a separate program that I want to send queries to that service, and have the service send back database entries.

Named memory mapped files, named pipes, mailslots, sockets,
DDE, COM, the clipboard, RPC... there are plenty of methods for
interprocess communication :D. Named pipes will probably be good
for you, as they are simple to work with, simple file read/write.

Just look this stuff up in MSDN. It even has a nice section about
IPC in general.

You could TCP/IP between the apps or peruse the Inter Process Comunication world. (IPC)
Check Elicz's site for more IPC information.
