How can a Windows .Net Service get its own filename (not service name)?

I have a Windows Service written in C#.  I want to be able to get the filename of the service executable -- NOT the service name.  Does anybody know how I can do this.?  I can't use the Application class because I can't add it's reference to a Service.

What about using reflection?

System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly.GetName.Name

That gives you back the name of your assembly, not the file name.  So if your program is called, Prog1.exe and your main assembly is MyProg1, then

System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly.GetName.Name

returns MyProg1.   That's not the same as the file name.
