Get the Path and FileName of the Current Application

The complete Path and filename are available in several ways... but the fastest is just to use:
  CString Path(*__argv);
Folk who don't know that you can directly access argv and argc by prefixing them with two underscores may use GetCommandLine() or this method:
  char Buffer[2*MAX_PATH]; // Allow space for Path AND FileName here.
  GetModuleFileName(GetModuleHandle(NULL), Buffer, sizeof(Buffer));
If you just want the path then use this:
  CString Path(*__argv);
  int i=Path.ReverseFind('\\')+1;
  if(i) Path=Path.Left(i);
