Gives you the complete path for the executable, you can extract the path from there.

Make sure to use the global instance with wxStandardPaths::Get(), don't create a new instance of it.

I Searched some very old codes because i remembered that there was another solution. There i found this:

Code: Select all

IMPLEMENT_APP(Projekt1DlgApp)

bool Projekt1DlgApp::OnInit() {
   wxString filename = wxString(argv[0]);
       ...
}
