In using Visual Studio to add a reference to an assembly, can the referenced assembly be an EXE . In other words, you are creating Program01.EXE and adding the reference
Program02 EXE.

Program01.exe  making a reference to Program02.exe.

Hope that is clear. what I am asking.

If Program01.exe is a .NET assembly, then yes. Once you add a reference you can treat the executable as if it were any other .NET library.

On rereading this, I meant to say if Program02.exe is a .NET assembly. Hopefully you caught that  = )
