    I know I can get the C4D directory path with GeGetStartupPath();
    But what I want is to get the path and the NAME of the application. Something like:

    MyDisk:Applications:3D Software:8.503:CINEMA 4D 8.5

    instead of just:

    MyDisk:Applications:3D Software:8.503:

    Is this possible?

    Only way I can think of is with a FileSelector dialog. Otherwise I´d say, no, not dynamically at least.

    Ok, I believe that will have to be the way :-(
    Its a shame that the GeGetStartupPath(); doesn't return the full Cinema4D path with the application name included. If we wanted just the folder would be a simple matter of doing path->RemoveLast();
    Thank you, Samir.
