Hi  Pern
Exit is a keyword used by VB.NET, so it's reserved. you cannot name any method of yours Exit. If you do so the compiler will get confused which method should it execute, the builtin one or your Exit method. Try naming your method to something else like MyExit or CustomExit.

So in otherwords :)

'Public  Sub ExitMySub()
    '        System.Console.WriteLine("Exiting...")
    '        System.Environment.Exit(0)
    '    End Sub
