If the communication needs to be 2-way then I would suggest that each system (you seem to be describing 2 but there could be more) have its own private output file which is read by the other(s). Each system writes its 'output' info to the file which would be seen as 'input' to the other(s). This avoids problems with 2 or more programs trying to write to the same file.
I have created a nice desktop application and I have no time (or money) to port it to metro. The good thing is that windows marketplace is selling desktop application too. Do you know the procedure and the cost of money that is needed to publish such a desktop application to windows 8 marketplace?

No idea on the cost, but the procedure is here[^]. There are two types of accounts that you can create, a "individual" and a "company" account. Docs say that only the company-account supports the old desktop.

Thank you both for the information. $99 is not such a problem since the it will reach thousand of users and it will repay the investment for good, the problem is that I don't own a company and I cannot create a company account.
If you are expecting to make a decent amount of money out of this, then creating a company is probably a good idea. If you can't, have you considered selling your app through the Intel AppUp Store[^]? That allows you to sell as an individual.

Living in Greece it is a drawn back for creating a company
Do you think that intel AppUp will accept desktop application? This is interesting, I'll check it when I get back home.
