Well, you know, you don't actually have to have Windows 2000 to do
asynchronous components. You can use MSMQ (included in the NT Option Pack)
to send asynchronous messages to a component, and it usually isn't hard to
package your parameters as strings in the message body. This is actually
what Win2K asynchronous components do anyway, behind the scenes - they just
wrap up MSMQ with components that handle the packing & unpacking for you,
and deal with some incidental problems like dead letters.
