Application Path Inconsistency

Be aware that when using the Path property of the Application object (App.Path), if your EXE is run from the root directory of a drive, App.Path will return the drive letter and a backslash (C:\), while an EXE in a subdirectory returns only the directory name (C:\DIR). Your application should, therefore, test for the presence of the backslash before adding a file name to it:

 
MyPath=App.Path
If Not Right(MyPath,1)=Chr(92) +_
        Then MyPath=MyPath & Chr(92)
