In WinForms Skin Editor, go to the Settings dialog, switch to the "External Preview Applications" tab, and specify a path to an application's executable file.

Skin Editor - Preview App

Click the Button - Preview"External Preview Application" button on the Skin Editor's main screen to choose a preview application, and if it has the AllowSkinEditorAttach property enabled, the app will be painted using your currently opened skin. This allows you to preview skins in a real-life application without the necessity to export them as libraries and reference them in that project.
