I have a console application that creates several objects which are instantiated classes which are part of the solution.  How can I share a console level variable between other class/dlls without passing the value into the class via something like sub new (myValues as someSetOfSharedValues)?

making the variables public will do it..but I'd suggest "Friend" (it's like public but a bit more secure).  The other idea is to use a database as the middleman between the different objects (if it makes sence to do that).

You showed an example that you want to pass variables through constructor. Yes, you can do that, just make a class constructor that accepts these variables.

Other way would be to have variables shared (static in c#). This can be done either by creating a shared class, or by creating a module, and having public fields (variables) in it. This fields will be visible everywhere in application, so you don't need to pass them in constructor.
