Environment.CurrentDirectory can be modified.

A better way would be:
System.IO.Path.GetDirectoryName(
      System.Diagnostics.Process.GetCurrentProcess().MainModule.FileName);

Open in new window

Again, current directory could be modified at some point, so GetCurrentDirectory could give inaccurate results.
