argv[0] contains the filename (with path) of the executable containing your program. Just strip the filename-part from it and you have your path.

Although the current directory isn''t always where the application was run from! - if the application was started as a child of another application (such as a custom menu) or from a shortcut it''ll be elsewhere.
I''ve seen a few games fail because they made the assumption the current directory would be where the .exe was.
