I am new to C# and I want to:

Create a Windows Forms Application that will send back a return code on exit, so that another application can receive an indication that it ran sucessfully or not.

I am trying to set the exit code before I call application exit, but it does not seem to work ...

System.Environment.ExitCode = 9;

What am I missing?

PS - I am not using a Console application, because I need to invoke a form for the user to interact with.
