"C:\Users\User\Documents\Visual Studio 2015\Projects\This Project\Required Files\file.txt"
"This Project\Required Files\file.txt"
is that possible?
I need to do this because I want to app to be portable, and if I put the whole path starting with C and the app is installed somewhere else (For EG. C:\User\Bob\Application\Required Files\file.txt")

Project you just do this.
Dim path as string = App.Path & "Project\Required Files\file.txt"
