You can use the process manager to get the FSSpec of your application:

This is the basic code:
ProcessSerialNumber psn;
ProcessInfoRec psiRec;
FSSpec spec;
OSErr err = GetFrontProcess(&psn);
psiRec.processName = nil;
psiRec.processAppSpec = &spec;
psiRec.processInfoLength = sizeof(psiRec);
err = GetProcessInformation(&psn, &psiRec);
// spec now has the location of the app...

Enjoy,
Reuven
