Is it possible to find an unpacked location of an mpk programmatically?

I have C# code that uses the app.config file to locate a map package ( <add key="EsriRuntimeEditingMapPackageLocation" value="C:/Projects//MyEditingMap.mpk"/> )
This map package is used by the Editor Widget to edit feature classes.  I need to be able to programmatically access the unpacked location of this map package.  I know that I can right-click on the mpk file in Arc Catalog and select Properties, and the ???Unpacked Location??? is indicated.  However, I need this path to be returned in the form of a string in my code.  Is there a way to do this?
I looked into using ArcGISFileHandler but didn't know how I could use this executable for my purposes.
Thanks!
