Will you always pass the same argument values or will these change every time?

Can you try with command line arguments ?

Hi

I think you can read the arguments from your Task Scheduler in your application main method.
For Example.

[STAThread]
      static void Main(string[] yourArgs)
      {
          yourArgs[0] // "your first argument";
          yourArgs[1] // "your second argument";
      }

Hi

In task scheduler, you can specify the command line arguments. Go to task scheduler -> double click on your task --> Go to 'Actions' --> Select your action --> 'Edit' --> 'Add Argumenets'. This you can read in your application start up.
