i was able to create a shortcut name dynamically, now i need to link it to executable of my software. to do that i need to know where the software has been installed.

So the question is how to get installation folder in custom installer class?


Hi serkan sendur,

To get only the folder part of the path, use static method GetDirectoryName of Path class.

using System.IO;
using System.Windows.Forms;

string appPath = Path.GetDirectoryName(Application.ExecutablePath);

To get assembly in which the specified class is defined use method Assembly.GetAs­sembly (with the specified class type as a paramater). The assembly must be loaded. Next get assembly file path using Assembly.CodeBase property.

using System.IO;
using System.Reflection;

string path = Path.GetDirectoryName(

I hope its helps
