Comments:

When starting a Windows application Windows returns four start-up values. These are required when calling a number of the Windows API routines. When using the shared run-time system, it is necessary to call this routine to get the start-up values so you can then use the Windows API.

You should not access the command line using the parameter passed here. Use ACCEPT ... FROM COMMAND-LINE instead.
