Hello,
  I have created a small application which helps in viewing the images as thumbnails and normal views and i have generated an exe file. And i am trying to open a image file from the Windows Explorer using the EXE i have created/generated using the VB code(I.e using the OPen with option of windows). The result is it is opening the application and is not showing the image which i wanted to see with my application.
Can anybody help me in creating the link so that i can use the Open with option of widows for my executable file.


Regards,

Pass the file name of the file as command line argument to your Exe and in your program use the Command Line argument to show the file

like this:


Sub Main()

     Dim Argument As String() = Environment.GetCommandLineArgs()

End Sub

Then run your app from the start --> run command line like this:

c:\myapp myparam

The variable Argument will have the value -- "myparam"

In this case you would pass your file name.

If you want the user to select the file you'll need to create the form interface and bag the command line.
