Hi,

The application path is where the application executable path is registered to - the physical path is where it actually is

please refer to

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/C_Sharp/Q_22044512.html
and
http:Q_21729871.html "How do you get the application path without the executable name in it?"

To save the text file in the application path you can use:

string FileName = Application.StartupPath + "\\name of text file.txt";

And then save the file with your text editor or FileStream.

Mishu

Are you talking about web or Windows application? For windows application there is practically no difference. For web you have two paths: the application path shows you where the application's virtual directory resides on the server (as visible for the web users) and the physical path shows you where the files are. For example if you have an application called MyApp with files installed in c:\inetpub\www\MyApp and visible as http://localhost/MyApp (as a virtual directory in IIS), then you have:

- Physical path: c:\inetpub\www\MyApp
- Application path: http://localhost/MyApp
