I start a process as such

                System.Diagnostics.Process zip = new System.Diagnostics.Process();

                // Lets create our string so that we can zip something up
                string arguments = "e " + "-o\"" + tempDir + "\" " + "\"" + parentDir + "\\" + filename + "\"";

                zip.StartInfo.FileName = "7za.exe";
                zip.StartInfo.Arguments = arguments;
                zip.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = true;
The system does NOT think that where my program is running from is the "working directory" and throws an exception everytime. How can I find where the path I'm running my Parent program from? It keeps trying to run 7za from the desktop and that's NOT where I'm running my program from. This is the weirdest behavior i've ever seen.

Have you checked out zip.StartInfo.WorkingDirectory? To send over the location of the parent program send Application.StartupPath as a paramter.
