- mark it as "Content" in file properties and also select one of the "Copy ..." options

- for the path to the file, it is copied to the same folder as your binaries, so you can do as in the code snippet

public string GetFullPath(string filename)
{
    string appDir = System.IO.Path.GetDirectoryName(System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetName().CodeBase);

    return System.IO.Path.Combine(appDir , filename);
}

Open in new window
