RTD Console Application
I have an RTD server that will run in debug mode (Visual Studio 2010, VB.NET) and when Excel launches, the RTD server starts - great.
My problem though is the following, I need to make this application either be an Add-in for Excel (no idea how to do this) or make it be an executable program: .exe, at which will launch Excel itself.
I can change the application to be a Console Application, allowing me to have a Main and to run Excel upon opening. Here is where the problem comes in, once this happens the application ends - I do not want this, I want the RTD server to start.
Is there a way to start up the RTD server as to keep the application running until Excel closes?
