I have and project that is made up of 1 ActiveX control and 1 Standard EXE.  The EXE project uses the ActiveX control.
In the ActiveX control I have the line App.Path in the ActiveX control.  This of course is returning the path of the ActiveX control project not the EXE which is what I want.  How do I get the path of the project that is using the ActiveX control

You should get it by using the App.Path in your standard EXE Project (not inside the ActiveX).
If you need it inside the ActiveX, you can setup a property to pass it to.
