"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

string aPath1 = Application.ExecutablePath;
    string aPath2 = Application.StartupPath
1. Add a reference to System.Windows.Forms
2. Add a using System.Windows.Forms; statement
3. The path you need is in Application.StartupPath property
Bad choice...

create a shortcut to your executable, edit the properties of this shortcut to change the startup path and then run your program : GetCurrentDirectory won't return the good path.

It may also return a wrong path if you access to files and change the current directory (ie: with SetCurrentDirectory) and then call GetCurrentDirectory.
