That still sounds like a great candidate for embedding Python.  Why do
you say you can't do it?  You can easily expose C++ message objects to
Python code using Boost, or serialize the C++ object, pass the data
over the C++/Python boundary, then deserialize it on the other side.
However, if you're dead set on IPC, I checked, and Windows does indeed
have FIFOs.

No problem :).  I just wanted to fully understand what you were trying
to do.
