Your question is not clear. you provide file name and you need full path of file?
test.tx is in same folder?

My requirement is we will install our application in merchant system, it will load application exe file in that system. I need to locate that exe file.

Try this:
C#
string full = System.IO.File.Directory.GetCurrentDirectory() + "\\" + "test.txt";

Hope this helps.

Use
C#
System.IO.Path.GetFullPath(filename);
to get full file path from file name .

From that, you can't get the full path from the filename, unless the file is present in your current working directory. If this is the case, you can use Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().Location.
