Obtain an Application's Current Execution Path

An easy way to identify the current execution path is by using the AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory property, which identifies the current assembly's execution path. This property works well for both Windows and web applications.

Note: The Environment.CurrentDirectory property also does the same, as long as the application does not use an open/save file-dialog. While Environment.CurrentDirectory initially points to the assembly's execution path, after the application invokes an open/save file-dialog, Environment.CurrentDirectory points to the path most recently accessed by the dialog.
