Hello,

is there a way to find out within a C# program, from which installation directory it was loaded. The Environment just gives the current directory but not the installation directory.

Any hint is very much appreciated.

Try this:
string path = System.IO.Path.GetDirectoryName(Process.GetCurrentProcess().MainModule.FileName);
Hope this helps.
