Ok then, here is your big problem.

For any type of scalability using a Windows machine, you will need to run
NT.

Then, you are going to need to have your main application run at all times
as a service.

Visual Basic can not make an application that runs as a service.  You have
to use C++.  (There IS a way to run a VB app as a service, but it is
unsupported and has severe memory issues.)

Of course, this may be different with VB.Net.

I will think over it more and see if I can think of other issues ... not to
burst your bubble, but to help find possible hitches ... I assume that is
one reason you posted your idea to the list.
