Hello!

I was wondering if there is a way to find the directory path where ArcMap is installed. Is there a key in the registry or a method in ArcObjects which can tell me the path to the directory where ArcMap is installed?

I've developed an AddIn which is installed on different machines with different configurations - ArcMap is installed in different places. I want to get the path to the addins directory at runtime (ideally located here: C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.6\bin\Addins).

Thanks

Hi,

Have you tried this:

System.IO.Path.GetDirectoryName(System.Windows.Forms.Application.ExecutablePath);

It works from add-in.

Thanks! I completely forgot about .net framework. Another way to get the directory is by:

AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory
