Find FULL App Path + App Extension!

This simple 10 lines of code (including 1 API call) will return the FULL application path INCLUDING the application extension. Very easy to use. Tired of using App.path & "" & app.exename & ".exe" when you dont know for sure that your extention will be .exe? This will return it all. Votes are welcome

Original Author: Steve Sellers


Just call FullAppName instead of putting in App.path & "" & app.exename & ".exe"


Simply place the API Code and the function in your project. Use FullAppName every time you refer to your self in your code.


A string containing the full application path and extention
