Hi pampa_analytica,

on win system you can use the getcwd(..) func

#include <direct.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>

void main( void )
{
   char buffer[_MAX_PATH];

   /* Get the current working directory: */
   if( _getcwd( buffer, _MAX_PATH ) == NULL )
      perror( "_getcwd error" );
   else
      printf( "%s\n", buffer );
}
