I am using VB5.0 to program a CGI script, and it needs to know the dir from where it was executed no matter what directory it is executed from. For example if a HTML file say in c:\inetpub\wwwroot used a form to execute the CGI script in c:\inetpub\exe for form data collecting, when i use Curdir in my script i get c:\inetpub\wwwroot as curdir when i needed c:\inetpub\exe, what do i do to get the CGI scripts dir no matter where the CGI script is placed!!

This less of a CGI question than a VB question... use App.Path to find out what directory your .exe is in.
