I am looking for information on disabling the “enable application framework” check box so my project can start from the main() sub. From what I have read unchecking that box disables being able to use my.whatever in your code. Most of the code I find has my.whatever in it (I get it makes things easier). My specifics are I am trying to learn vb2010 and have always used the getusername function in the sub main. I know I could probably put it in the form load, but I am trying to learn. When I uncheck the enable application framework check box - what do I have to do to reference things if I can't use my. ?
