Hi, I see the problem in updating a /Runtime version. How do you update the script of a /Runtime version without killing the /Runtime engine and how do you update the /Runtime engine without killing the encrypted script contained in it? Will the client have to download a complete new EXE? Than I have to handle the process of generating a /Runtime version for the client... not very cost effective.

Hmm... I'm not sure if parse on opened port will solve the problem. Accessing huge amounts of data fast needs some datastructure infrastructure ;-) to be efficient & effective. If you want to use parse, than parse would have to support several channels: One data channel to skip along; one index channel, which will provide optimized skip information for the data channel etc.

Try the and the OpenAmulet documentation contains some information about constraint programming. Hope this helps. Robert
