from within an assembly, How to get its name and path?

Hello,

What is the easiest (and cleanest) way to get from within an assembly
information such as assembly path and name.

eg:
current assembly is:
C:\temp\blabla.dll

I just want to get this "C:\temp\blabla.dll" string back.
Thanks,
José

Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().CodeBase;

That will give it as file:///c:/temp/blabla.dll - you can check for and
strip off the file:/// though if you want. (Don't forget that the
assembly may not have been loaded from disk.)

Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().CodeBase;


I'd use Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().Location instead.

Yup, that is indeed a better way.
