I have a Setup and Deployment Project using Visual Studio .net . I'm trying to get the directory where the setup.exe is running from. ie. cdrom or network path, I need the path so I can run another app from the setup.

Thanks,
BArb

That would be nice, however there is no place for such code in a setup and deployment project.
