Find the executable path of current application

Posted by VIJI Sunday, July 5, 2009

There are two ways to find the path the current running application.


1. Using Application.ExecutablePath

2. System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly()

Prerequisties:

Import the System.Reflection name space in the top of the windows Form

Example:

[CODE]

Imports System.Reflection

Public Class Form1

....

Private Sub FindPathOfExe()

Dim appPath as String

'Method 1

appPath = Application.ExecutablePath

Debug.Print "Application path: " & appPath

'Method 2
appPath = System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().Location


Debug.Print "Application path: " & appPath


End Sub

End Class

[/CODE]
