I have the following location to an exe file stored in a string (extracted from the registry)

c:\test\home\files\program\test.exe

the location of the test.exe will always be in a folder called program.

I need to extract the directory location upto the program folder i.e. c:\test\home\files which is not always the same.

Any help would be much appriciated.
