Is this from the application?  

If you are trying to get the folder where the applicaiton is running from you can use App.Path.

I believe you want to get the command line that was given by the user ("programm.exe commandline"). To do that, just read the variable Command (it's already defined by the app when it starts running) which contains the entire command line.

Good luck
