find executable command line arguments

In an application say I have 'a.exe' This executable starts up, does some functions and then calls 'b.exe' with some arguments or command line parameters. I need to find out what the arguments are.

If i start up 'b.exe', I'm getting a message 'Error: Not enough arguments were supplied'

Create a new exe called b.exe that has this in the Form_Load event of the default form (form1)

msgbox Command$

Now move your true b.exe elsewhere for a bit (or rename it)

Pop your trojan b.exe in and you should get the commands being passed.

get this app rename it to b.exe and run a.exe..
it will show you the exact parameters it got called with
