Does anyone know where to pull command line arguments passed to a vb.net exe. The documentation says these are accessbile via the StartArguments Property. But I can't figure out how to access this. Any clues?

Imagine that you start the exe with params like that

abc.exe "param"


Dim args() As String
        Dim param() As String

        args = Split(CommandLine, """") 'split by quotation mark
now your param is in the last memeber of args array
        param = Trim(args(UBound(args)))

You can use the Environment.GetCommandLineArgs method.
