Get current directory

To get the current directory to use inside batch files.


There is a very simple way to get the directory from a batch script file. CD environment variable stores the current directory of a command window session. Just run the command ‘echo %CD%’ and check it yourself.

C:\Users\windmdline>echo The current directory is %CD%
The current directory is C:\Users\wincmdline

Or you can use a much better alternative

%~dp0 is the variable you want.
It outputs the drive and path of the batch file.
EX1: C:\mydir\myfile.bat becomes C:\mydir\
Ex2: @echo off
Set SetupApp=WinaeroTweaker-0.17.0.0-setup.exe

%SetupApp% /VERYSILENT /PORTABLE /DIR="%~dp0\wt_portable"
exit
Will create a new directory in the directory where you have the WinaeroTweaker-0.17.0.0-setup.exe file called wt_portable and run the WinaeroTweaker-0.17.0.0-setup.exe to create a portable extraction of all files.

Here’s a MS reference, it works in thing other than Batch; like VBS SCCM, PS, shortcuts too.
