Access to ACT.UI from an external application

I have a couple of questions and it would be great is someone answered them.

 

  1- Is there a way to access the ACT.UI from an external application without having to write a iPlugin? In ACT! 6, you could access the current instance of ACT! and access all the data in the UI. Is there such a thing in ACT! 2007+

  2- If not and I have to use the iPlugin methodology, then, is there a way to pass the current session's ACT! framework to an external application. I don't want to have to recompile my application into a .dll in order to be able to pass the framework object. Has anyone done anything like this?

 

Basically, I already have an Windows Application. However, I want to be able to run it from the ACT! Menu but I'm coming into a problem where to access the framework without having to turn my app into a dll. Any clues?

Thank you for your insightfull comments. However, I was expecting some code showing how to do it. This is the ACT! Developer Forum, correct?
