I'm not sure I understand the question. Here's what I tried (using v301):

 1. Change DrScheme to the "MzScheme" language.
 2. Put 
      (printf "~s\n" argv) 
    in the definitions window.
 3. Save as "example.scm".
 4. Select "Create Executable" and saved as "example.exe".
 5. Start a "Command Prompt" and cd to the directory where
    "example.exe" was saved.
 6. Run
      example.exe 1 2 3
    and see
      #3("a" "b" "c")
    as output.
