can someone give me information on command line arguments.  I was under the impression that if i put a command line argument into my project and make an executable, I could run it from the Windows start menu and the command line would take effect.  I am unsure of how they work.  It is not working the way I thought it would.  I need information.  Thank You.

Command line in the project properties only works inside Visual Basic environment. You should use this only for debugging purposes.

If you need to pass a command line to your program, you need to create a shortcut to your program. Then, right click on the shortcut and edit the target changing to:

"c:\yourprogram\yourprogram.exe parameter1 parameter2"

Use the VB Command() function to retrieve the parameters.
