I need to pass some parameters into a VB program, so that
the program can display them in a form.
For example : The VB program name is <Try.exe>.

So when a user type <Try.exe "apple" "orange"> then enter
to execute the program the two parameter will be taken in
by the program and display on one of the form Label together.

Use command$ in your program - you don't need quotes around your string

e.g. in your program

    Label1.Caption = Left(Command$, InStr(Command$, " ") - 1)

    Label2.Caption = Right(Command$, Len(Command$) - InStr(Command$, " "))

This chops up the string

to call the exe use

Myprog.exe apple orange

NB I forgot youd given the program a name, so your users will type

Try.exe apple orange

You could still use quotes as delimeters, but you'd have to write code to strip the relevant text from command$
