What are Console Applications in VB.NET?

Console applications are command line oriented applications. which means we can enter the characters in the console and they are executed in the dos version.They are supported by System.Console namespace.

Console Applications have only recently been introduced in VB (Excluding VB for DOS). They are command line based and run in within a DOS Shell (DOS Window). Unlike WindowsApplications, Console Applications do not support Windows GUI's. Which means that you can't work with controls from the toolbox.
