You can use :

string a = AppDomain.CurrentDomain.SetupInformation.ApplicationBase;

Open in new window

It is the path to where the executable is located in the system.

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.

Be careful not to change the current working directory in your program because if you do it will no longer point to where the executable is running from.
