Description: The Network DDE DSDM service manages Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) shared folders. This service is used only by Network DDE to manage shared DDE conversations. You can create and trust DDE shares by using Ddeshare.exe to allow remote computers and applications to connect and share data. Network DDE DSDM maintains a database of DDE shared folders, including information on which ones are trusted. For each connection request from or to an application, the service queries the database and validates your security settings to determine if the request should be granted.
If this service is stopped, DDE shared folders are unavailable.If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on the service will fail to start. Any applications depending on Network DDE will time out while trying to start the service. If an application on a remote computer tries to start Network DDE on another computer, the remote computer will not be viewable on the network.
