Maybe this will help
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.visualbasic.applicationservices.windowsformsapplicationbase(v=vs.80).aspx

public class WindowsFormsApplicationBase : ConsoleApplicationBase

Open in new window

It tells you in the article:

Public Class cStartup
   Inherits Microsoft.VisualBasic.ApplicationServices.WindowsFormsApplicationBase
End Class

Open in new window


You'll probably need to add a reference to Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll.

I'm using C# tho...not VB. Let me add a reference to Microsoft.CSharp.dll

Now, If I use
public class WindowsFormsApplicationBase : ConsoleApplicationBase

That's WindowsFormsApplicationBase inherting from ConsoleApplicationBase....

I need (per that article) my class to inherit from WindowsFormsApplicationBase

You probably don't need it.
What are you trying to do ?
start an app AND pass arguements to it ?
read the arguements passed to the current app ?
Start only one instance of an app ?

I'm just puzzled why you highlight you are doing it in C# and then accept an answer to use VB.

there is nothing wrong in using the VB library in C# if it contains features you want!

Agreed - but maybe there is a simple C# way to accomplish what was required.  (One can get from A to D round a square by going A..B..C...D if one wants but maybe A..D is more suitable).

Anyway as long as it works.
