Hallo everyone,

I'm trying to get a project path from my instance project.

*******************************
Normal Visual studio

normalSolution.sln
-> normalProject1.csproj (C:\a\b\c\normalProject1.csproj)
-> normalProject2.csproj (C:\x\y\z\normalProject2.csproj)
*******************************
In my Instance project

MyNewSolution.sln (C:\a\b\c\)
-> MyNewMainProject.abc (C:\a\b\c\MyNewMainProject\MyNewMainProject.abc)
---> name1.newcsproj (C:\a\b\c\MyNewMainProject\name1\name1.newcsproj)
---> name2.newcsproj C:\x\y\z\name2\name2.newcsproj)
*******************************

How can I get these 2 path?
---> name1.newcsproj (C:\a\b\c\MyNewMainProject\name1\name1.newcsproj)
---> name2.newcsproj C:\x\y\z\name2\name2.newcsproj)

Thank you very much in advance. :)

//with this code I can get only "MyNewMainProject.abc (C:\a\b\c\MyNewMainProject\MyNewMainProject.abc)"

EnvDTE.DTE dte = (EnvDTE.DTE)this.ServiceProvider.GetService(typeof(EnvDTE.DTE));
Array a = (Array)dte.ActiveSolutionProjects;
for (int i = 0; i < a.Length; i++)
{
     project = (EnvDTE.Project)a.GetValue(i);
}

string path = Directory.GetParent(Path.GetDirectoryName(Application.StartupPath)).FullName

The result is

sPath = System.AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory;
sPath = my exe path

sAppPath = Environment.CurrentDirectory;
sAppPath = my bin\\Debug path

Unfortunately, both are not project path.

Below code gives correct result for me.
using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Xml.Linq;
using System.Xml;
using System.Collections;

namespace TestApplication
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            
            string path = Directory.GetParent(Path.GetDirectoryName(Environment.CurrentDirectory.ToString())).FullName;

            Console.WriteLine(path);
            Console.Read();

        }
    }
}

It shows the project path of my development project not from my instance project.

My project is dealing with COM Object and DSL.

What do you mean by Instance project?

 However run the code from your instance project to get the result. From wherever you run it will give the path where the project resides.

I'm programming a custom project like below :
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa289144(v=vs.71).aspx

When I click on start debugging, the new visual studio will start. Then I add the new solution. After that I add my custom project.

That's mean now I have 2 Visual studio starting in my computer. 1st is what I'm programming and 2nd is what I'm debugging.

from your code this one ....
string path = Directory.GetParent(Path.GetDirectoryName(Environment.CurrentDirectory.ToString())).FullName;

It show the path (of project) what I'm programming. It doesn't show the path (of custom project) what I'm debugging.

Oops! ... I'm very bad in explaining something. Sorry. :(

Well. I was not aware of that.  I refered the link that you have provided. I observed that at point number 7 it is given as  var strProjectPath = wizard.FindSymbol("PROJECT_PATH"); whether it returns what you expect?
