Are you looking for the current directory? If so, try the 'curdir' command/function. That will tell you the current directory.

I don't think that there is one place that you will be able to find it in.  More than likely, you are going to have to obtain your machine name and share and concatenate them with your app path.

Is there any other API call in any custom dll file which will
help me in getting the UNC path directly.

Keeping the drive control will not help.

And more over can anyone please tell me how to get
the share name from any API call.

I got the machine name but cant find any API function
for getting the share name.

Thanking you all
