Hi you experts.
I want to be able to get the path of a dll. Let me explain the senario.
I have developed a windows application in order to test the dll. The dll must load some parameters from an xml file that is in the same folder. All i want is to get the path that the dll exists so i can load the xml file.

Any ideas of how can i do that?

Thank you all in advance

Here is one way,

Imports System.Xml

Dim oXMLDOMDoc As New XmlDocument
Dim sURIPath, sAbsolutePath As String
Dim uu As Uri

sURIPath = System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().CodeBase
uu = New Uri(sURIPath)

' Get the local path from the URIPath.
sAbsolutePath = uu.LocalPath

'Open XML Configuration File and load it into the XMLDocument object.
oXMLDOMDoc.Load(sAbsolutePath & ".Config")

Cheers,

Darren
