I'm migrating from VB6 to VB 2010 .Net and having a problem with what to do with my old Scripting.FileSystemObject functions.

Below is some VB6 code. What namespace do I need to use and specifically how would  do thisI:
Dim fs As New Scripting.FileSystemObject
Dim FileCurrent as File
Set fileCurrent = fs.GetFile(App.Path & "\SomeFile.exe")

The closet one is FileInfo, like this:

        Dim oInfo As System.IO.FileInfo = My.Computer.FileSystem.GetFileInfo(My.Application.Info.DirectoryPath & "\SomeFile.exe")
