I am trying to invoke one wpf application from another wpf application. The invoking wpf application makes the call
ProcessStartInfo BOM = new ProcessStartInfo();
BOM.FileName = @"D:\WPFAPPLICATION.exe";
BOM.Arguments = temp;

Now in the invoked application, I try to retrieve the argument passed using
string arguments =Process.GetCurrentProcess().StartInfo.Arguments;

However the arguments are not passed. why is this??

I also tried an alternative method where in:

 public partial class App : Application
    public static String[] mArgs;
    private void Application_Startup(object sender, StartupEventArgs e)
        if (e.Args.Length > 0)
            mArgs = e.Args;

I have also tried:
string[] args = Environment.GetCommandLineArgs

However this did not work either!!! Please HELP!!

I found a web page that showed a version that was converted from C# to VB.Net[^]

Ive tried this in VB.Net and it works

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
    Dim psnfo As String
    Dim strbuilder As New StringBuilder
    Dim arg As String
    For Each arg In Environment.GetCommandLineArgs()
    psnfo = strbuilder.ToString
    TextBox1.Text = "Args: " & psnfo.ToString
End Sub

The code returns:
Args: C:\Testapp1.exe

It will return both args passed to it.

your code does not appear to treat the args as an array or group of items.
Hope this helps some.
