function GetAppName(hwindow: HWND): string;
var
  h: HMODULE;
begin
  SetLength(Result, 100);
  h := GetClassLong(hwindow, GCL_HMODULE);
  GetModuleFileName(h, PChar(Result), 100);
end;

for filename:
ExtractFileName(GetAppName(theHandle))

for file path:
ExtractFilePath(GetAppName(theHandle))

will get the job done for you...

ExtractFileName(Application.EXEname)
will return the exename(full path, I think) of your program
if you need exename of any program, well
not sure on that one
