I have created an C# application  called "Demo.exe"

However, I would like to make a copy of Demo.exe like Demo1.exe, Demo2.exe.

What API allows me to get the name of the application that I execute.

For example,  if I click on Demo1.exe, I would like to get 'Demo1.exe' as the application name within the Demo1.exe application.

Alternatively:

System.IO.Path.GetFileName(System.Environment.GetCommandLineArgs()[0])

Alternatively :)

            // assembly file name
            string codebase = System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetName().CodeBase;
            string filename = System.IO.Path.GetFileName(codebase);
            MessageBox.Show("File name = " + filename);

            // process name (no .exe extension)
            string processname = System.Diagnostics.Process.GetCurrentProcess().ProcessName;
            MessageBox.Show("Process name = " + processname);

Open in new window
