A lot of languages have methods that will provide you with the file name, the thing.exe part of a path as well, which would allow to do a replace, swapping the file name with an empty string. Or alternatively return the path with the file name removed automatically.
If we knew what language you were using we could provide actual examples.

Ok thanks you all for the help i found what i search :) !
