In Visual Basic, the command line arguments can be accessed through 'Command' string variable.
So if you wish to access only particular argument then you have to split this string to array of arguments:

Try this:
---------------------------------------
Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim args() As String                         'Create an empty array which will be used to store arguments
    Print Command                                'Print the entire line of arguments
    args() = Split(Command, " ")            'Split this line into an array
    For x = 0 To UBound(args)
        Print args(x)                                'Print each argument separately
    Next x
End Sub
---------------------------------------

What type of application it must be and do I have to declare something?

If your application is compiled to exe (any kind) then it will work.
You don't have to declare anything.
If you wish to test this during design time, then set the command line arguments under    Project  -  Properties  -  'Make' Tab   in Visual Basic
