Question:
I want to run my VB5 app with different parameters, for example, like this:

c:Myapp.exe -C

to run in a mode I want to call “config-mode.” Is this possible with VB5?

Answer:
It sure is! The Command function returns the argument portion of the command line. So in your code, you can check the command line arguments to determine which functionality to provide.

To simulate command line arguments when running the project in the IDE, enter the arguments into Project PropertiesMakeCommand Line Arguments.
