Hi,

there is both an executable path and startup path

http://www.thescarms.com/dotnet/apppath.asp

if you are referencing windows.forms you should be able to do

    string aPath1 = Application.ExecutablePath;
    string aPath2 = Application.StartupPath;

This could work even windows.forms is not referenced.
System.IO.Path.GetDirectoryName(System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().CodeBase)
