In your coding, add this.
Private Sub Form_Load()
   MsgBox Command
End Sub

You can of course use the Command variable anywhere in the program.


Run the exe like this assuming your exe is on the desktop
c:\windows\desktop\Project1.exe hello world

"hello world" will be echoed.


Below will show you roughly how to use the parameters.
Private Sub Form_Load()
   Dim aryParams()
   aryParams = Split(Command()," ")
   'will give
   'aryParams(0) = "hello"
   'aryParams(1) = "world"
End Sub
