An Application consists of one or more Assemblies. An Assembly consists of
one or more EXE and DLLs that have been put into a package and installed on
your computer. An Application will create instances of those classes as it
runs. With regard to difference between which variables can and can't be
shared, I'll have to pass on that one. What variables are you specifially

An Assembly is a way packaging multiple files so that an Application can
run. Thus, and Application is just one of the files in an Assembly.
