MSEifi is a system where MSEgui forms and Pascalscripts are transported over a 
communication channel and run in a clientside "MSEgui" browser or browser 
plugin. For the server side we need equivalent event handling as at the GUI

tcustomapplication has two descendants, tapplication with a OS window system 
based eventqueue and tnoguiapplication with an internal event queue.
If you have no widgets in your application and no graphics in your system add 
msenogui to the uses clause, msegui otherwise.
MSEgui has many useful components and classes for non gui applications 
(example teventthread, tthreadcomp, tpipereader...).
IIRC I told you several times about MSEgui. :-)

Not easy. Suggestion: use MSEide.
