Is there an equivalent to VB6's App.Path in VB.NET?

VB6 had App.Path, so I could put my Access database in the same folder as the .EXE and it would find it easily. Is there an equivalent in VB.NET? How can I find the path in which the application is installed, so I can use that to find supporting files?
It's now called Application.StartupPath.
