  • I'm not sure I understand the question here.

    Do you have a question about the IVsSolutionBuildManager.DebugLaunch API? How exactly are you attempting to invoke it?

    Or are you asking if there is an alternative way to programmatically launch the project with command line arguments different than what is already specified for the active project configuration?

    If it's the latter, you'll probably need to use something like IVsDebugger2.LaunchDebugTargets2, which takes a VsDebugTargetInfo2 argument, which has a bstrArg field that denotes the command line arguments used to launch the debugee process.
