Hello !
I think that,
In Visual Basic You Have app object and it have all properties
of your application.

You have only one way to terminate your application, it`s End & Stop Statements and it`s cann`t return any value (Like in C++ for example)


I suggest you to look in Help about 'app' object and all it`s properties.
I`m sorry, I`m now in other computer so I haven`t visual Basic here and can`t to check it myself.

I believe that the original poster is correct, there is no way to provide a return code directly.  But what you can do is a sneaky hack to do it.  Before your VB app terminates, have it write the return code in a file somewhere on your disk, such as an .ini file.  Then write a C++ .exe which executes your VB app, and when the VB app returns, have the C++ app read the file for the return code.  Then it should return that code itself.  Finally, have your original app shell to the C++ code!
