Current Directory

Question:
I made a project that resides in a subdirectory under Microsoft Visual Basic 4. Example: C:/Program Files/Microsoft Visual Basic//

When I run the program, I want it to get all the needed files from its own directory. How do I set VB to do this automatically, so when I make distribution disks it will allow the user to place the program wherever they want it and have it still run properly?

Answer:
Use the App.Path property for the location your application is installed. The CurDir function returns the current directory, which at startup would be the "Start in" folder as set in your application's shortcut.
