 Do you start your EXE from Visual Basic with the function Shell "MyFile.EXE" for example,
  or you want to detect some out of Visual Basic started EXE?

for the start time you can just use the system variable Time. I'm not sure if it is a string or an integer though becasue I can't remember.
I can't help with the path name though.
