I have a string that is being read in from a file.
application.exe,pathofapplication

what I need to do is only add the app.exe to my arraylist. I am getting a casting error (Unable to cast object of type 'System.String[]' to type 'System.String') on my foreach loop

What do I need to do to fix this?

arrText.Add(sLine.ToString().Split((@",").ToCharArray()));

foreach (string mystring in arrText)
{
}
