Examples

The following example gets the app's installation folder and displays the value of the folder's Path.

using Windows.Storage;
using System.Diagnostics; // For writing results to the Output window.

// Get the app's installation folder.
StorageFolder appFolder = Windows.ApplicationModel.Package.Current.InstalledLocation;

// Print the folder's path to the Visual Studio Output window.
Debug.WriteLine(appFolder.Name + " folder path: " + appFolder.Path);
// Get the app's installation folder.
Windows::Storage::StorageFolder appFolder{ Windows::ApplicationModel::Package::Current().InstalledLocation() };

// Print the path to the debug window.
::OutputDebugString(appFolder.Path().c_str());
// Get the app's installation folder
StorageFolder^ appFolder = Windows::ApplicationModel::Package::Current->InstalledLocation;

//Print the path to the debug window
String^ path = appFolder->Path;
OutputDebugString(path->Begin());

Remarks

Don't rely on this property to access a folder, because a file system path is not available for some folders. For example, in the following cases, the folder may not have a file system path, or the file system path may not be available.

  • The folder represents a container for a group of files (for example, the return value from some overloads of the GetFoldersAsync method) instead of an actual folder in the file system.
  • The folder is backed by a URI.
  • The folder was picked by using a file picker.
