Hi,  there doesn't seem to be a refernce to 'executablepath' in the application namespace on my vb.net app ( where I was expecting to find it ).  I'm targetting Windows Mobile 5.0 and using CF2.0.  Any ideas how I can get my app's executable path ?

Thanks

Thanks for the answer.  A bit long winded, but it certainly does the job ! :-)  Your 2nd suggested solution does not appear to be available on my system, which probably means that it's not available in the .Net 2 Compact Framwork.

Thanks
