I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

FernandoSoto have I to add some "using" statement to call Application oblect?
Fernando SotoRetiredCommented:
It is in System.Windows.Forms namespace and should be there by default on a Windows Form application.
if you want the path to the actual executable file with the executable name you use  Application.ExecutablePath

if you only want the path to the executable you would use Application.StartupPath.  
AppDomain.CurrentDomain.SetupInformation.ApplicationBase is the best solution, also for the debugging purposes.
Try this:  Environment.CurrentDirectory
