Geoprocessing Using ArcObjects - Feature Class to Feature Class...

I am writing an extension for ArcMap using ArcObjects and VB.Net. As part of this extension I would like to access the �??Feature Class to Feature Class�?? geoprocessing tool using ArcObjects.

Using the example in http://edndoc.esri.com/arcobjects/9.2/CPP_VB6_VBA_VCPP_Doc/COM/gp/Using%20Geoprocessing%20Tools%20in%20VB.pdf as a guide, I have managed to come up with the code below. This code however causes ArcMap to crash at the GP.Execute line.

I have read the help file for this tool which suggests that the �??in_features�?? and �??out_path�?? need to be of types  IFeatureLayer and IWorkspace respectively. Unfortunately I don�??t know how to set the properties correctly for this interface. http://resources.esri.com/help/9.3/arcgisdesktop/com/gp_toolref/conversion_tools/feature_class_to_feature_class_conversion_.htm

Also am I correct in setting the optional parameters to Nothing? Or should I not declare/set these at all?

To start with I�??m just looking to go from SHP to SHP, but ultimately the goal will be SHP to SDE.

Can anyone help me out?

Thanks. Rob.
