The "My" namespace does not exist in C#. To get the application startup path, try using:

string strPath = Application.StartupPath;

Thanks kaufmed.

Tried it, but it says:

The name 'Application' does not exist in the current context

Ctrl + '.' (period) suggests to add: System.Net.Mime.MediaTypeNames.Application

I took a stab that you were writing a Forms application. If you are, then that logic should work. If, however, you are writing a console application, then you won't have access to the Application class, and you have to do something like this:

using System.IO;
using System.Reflection;

...

string strPath = Path.GetDirectoryName(Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().Location);

Open in new window


If this is a web application, then I would have to ask:  What do you need the startup path for?
