I am not sure what you are asking for but the way I
share settings across my other applications is to use the registry.
As far as I am aware you do not need Administrator permissions to do this.
The code to save a variable to the registry is:
SaveSetting("MyApp", "Startup", "Top", "75")
In this case the variable's name is "Top" And the value is "75"
It is stored in the following registry location:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VB and VBA Program Settings\MyApp\Startup]
And the code to read the variable in your other application is:
Messagebox.show("Your variable is: " & GetSetting("MyApp", "Startup", "Top", "")
The added bones is that this will save your variable and is still usable even after the User restarts there computer.
You may want to conceder using some kind of encryption when storing raw text on a User's computer.
