Pretty simple I think, I just don't know how to do it and can't seem to find it on google. Is there a way in C# to find the directory of the program you are running?

There is a topic in MSDN titled: How to: Get the Application Directory

It includes this little snippit:

string strAppDir = Path.GetDirectoryName(Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetModules()[0].FullyQualifiedName);

There's also Application.ExecutablePath.

Application resides in System.Windows.Forms but it works for console applications as well (you'll need to add the appropriate reference though).
