    Dirk

        This function is not really needed as .NET provides it for you, all it is:

        System.IO.Path.GetDirectoryName(System.AppDomain.CurrentDoma in.BaseDirectory)

        We are trying to trim down the API by removing things that .NET already provides.

          How do you guarantee HS3 plugins will run on HS4 when functions are removed from the API?

            rjh This returns the path of the plugin .exe and the problem I have is if it is running remotely it returns the local path but GetAppPath returned the HS3.exe path on the device HS is running on.

              The entire HS3 API is there, we just created a new API over the old one that "hides" the old functions. In theory you can get all the old functions if you really wanted to. If a function is missing that you need, let us know and we will add it.

              So HS3 plugins get the exact same API they got before.

                Just for my information, why do you need the path of HS if the plugin is running remotely?

                  I use it to place files in the HTML/Plugin Name directory so it can be downloaded by the user from the config page of the plugin. I also use this so the log file is placed on the HS system and not the remote one.

                    This works for me

                          I'm using the following, is it the same?
                          Code:
                          Path.GetDirectoryName(Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().Location)
