    I would like to ask for a little help. I have the exapmle plugin that write the speed, gear, and RPM data into a .txt file. I've created a c# program that read data from the .txt and show the live data as a telemetry program. But how can i do, to the plugin send the data directly to my c# program without write and read .txt file.

    You could get your c# program opening a port and listening for a connection from the plugin, in order to talk directly. The c++ code required for that in the plugin is quite straightforward (google is your friend), I've never used c# but I'm guessing it'll be a little easier than c++ for server-side socket connections.

    I have done the c# listener but i don't know how to do the c++ (plugin) side to send the dll data. I haven't find anything about this on google. Do you know any tutorial for this or any example/source code?

    If you google "C++ socket programming" for example, you'll find some code samples. Obviously you only need worry about the client side.
