Take a look at this answer.
get startup adr of application[^]
 
It might not be so obvious as using StartUpPath, as you might get unexpected results from it.

Solution 2

public static string StartupPath { get; }
 
Gets the path for the executable file that started the application.
 
Sample:
private void PrintStartupPath() 
{
    textBox1.Text = Application.StartupPath;
}
