Hi,

How do I modify the code below to access the xml file in the "Data" subfolder?

xmlPath3 = System.IO.Path.Combine(Application.StartupPath, "Receiver.xml")

The code above looks for the file in the Bin/Debug folder but the xml file is in the "Data" subfolder.


I tried the code below but it does not work:

xmlPath3 = System.IO.Path.Combine(Application.StartupPath + \Data\, "Receiver.xml")

Thanks,

Victor
