Application.StartupPath is the path your exe is running from.

Hi,
Application.ExecutablePath will get the path for the executable file that started the application, including the executable name.  
Application.StartupPath will get the path of the executable file that started the application, not including the executable name.

Hi,
When exe1 calls exe2 then in exe2 when we try to get in the above way using Application we will get the exe1 path information not the exe2.
To get the exe2 info then we can get using:
string path = System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().CodeBase

Note: This way will get even the exe1 path when used in exe1 also.
