The File Delivery Channel is really best suited for the testing

For the situation you've described, I'd probably consider Query
Notifications (SQL Dependency) rather than SQLNS. 

If you'd like to stay with a SQLNS solution, consider developing a
Custom Delivery Protocol to talk with your desktop app.
