I am writing a C# application using .Net Framework 4.0

I have a snippet of code as follow in my program:

Why am I pointing to two different directory paths in the following code?

The filenames are the same.

My correct path is defined by TARGET_DIR_IN

However, "File.ReadAllBytes(fileName)" defines the path as "\\m\USERS\z\My Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Projects\W\bin\Debug\20160824.ard.out'"             as I can tell from the debugger.

------------------
const string TARGET_DIR_IN = @"\\v\na\ctrls\dev\W\data\Test\";

string[] files = Directory.GetFiles(TARGET_DIR_IN, "*.out", SearchOption.TopDirectoryOnly);
            foreach (string file in files)
            {
                string fileName = Path.GetFileName(file);
                byte[] imgBits = File.ReadAllBytes(fileName);

Because the GetFileName returns the file name from the supplied string.  You are stripping the path out.

The string 'file' should be the complete path to the file which I think is what you want.
