Finding home directory

OSR_Community_UserOSR_Community_User Member Posts: 110,217
Hi!

We are looking for a function which helps a running application to find
its home directory. We know there is one, but where and what is its name?

Best regards,
Ingmar Brumm

  • GetModuleFileNameEx() will give u the full path of the running
    application. Truncate the last exe name and u get the home directory.

    I guess thats what u want.

    thanx
    Tushar
