    Shared Sub Main()

        Dim root As AppDomain = AppDomain.CurrentDomain

        Dim setup As New AppDomainSetup()
        setup.ApplicationBase = _
            root.SetupInformation.ApplicationBase & "MyAppSubfolder\"

        Dim domain As AppDomain = AppDomain.CreateDomain("MyDomain", Nothing, setup)

        Console.WriteLine("Application base of {0}:" & vbCrLf & vbTab & "{1}", _
            root.FriendlyName, root.SetupInformation.ApplicationBase)
        Console.WriteLine("Application base of {0}:" & vbCrLf & vbTab & "{1}", _
            domain.FriendlyName, domain.SetupInformation.ApplicationBase)

    End Sub
End Class

'Application base of MyApp.exe:
'        C:\Program Files\MyApp\
'Application base of MyDomain:
