I'm not actually sure you can, nor would it be a good idea to use Winamp via DDE, a simple alternative (simple because its already done for you), would be to use COM Objects, see here for a tutorial by Hammer.

Along the same lines... I've written a program in VB that uses DDE to talk to MIRC. If anyone needs some sample (VB) code let me know. smile The only problem with VB is the communication is one-way (at least it was at the time I wrote it, a few MIRC versions back)... from VB to MIRC.

This example allows you to send commands to MIRC. Make sure your DDE server is on in MIRC (it is by default). Do /DDEServer to find out if it is on. The DDE server should be named MIRC for this to work. If you connect to more than one server at a time there's a chance MIRC will lock up when you try to send a command. I cannot take credit for part of this code since I found it on the net. It works great.

Add this sub into a VB project. Make sure it has a text box named "text1"...


Private Sub mIRCCommand(Cmd As String)

On Error GoTo problem

'Create a DDE connection
If Text1.LinkMode = vbNone Then
Text1.LinkTopic = "MIRC|COMMAND"
' Set link topic.
Text1.LinkMode = vbLinkManual
' Set link mode.
End If

'SendCommand
Text1.LinkExecute "/dde mirc command " & Chr$(34) & Chr$(34) & " " & Cmd

Exit Sub

problem:

' Uh-oh, there was an error
MsgBox Err.Description

End Sub

Sorry to drag up an old post.

I'm writing an app in VB6. Is it possible to connect to the mIRC DDE server with
Code:
 LinkMode = Notify 
, or even
Code:
  LinkMode = Automatic 
?
