Need help. Using INNO script to create an install package

Need help. Using INNO script to create an install package

I am using INNO to create an install package. The install goes fine except the installed .exe is not looking for the application files in the installed app directory.
It looks in the dir that Visual Studio created when I designed the app.

I understand that I have to write code within my app to direct it to look in the installed application dir. Can anyone give me some sample code, in Visual Basic, on how to do that? And is the code a Win32API function?

I have never done this before and have never written an API function. I have been unable to find any help on the net.

Thank You,
faxpay Tom

You can use Application.StartupPath():

Dim sFileName As String = Application.StartupPath() & "\<<file name here>>"
