Calogero, I don't think "working" directory means exactly what you think it means. Also, as Nicolás says, "the path the application was launched from" means whatever the Finder wants it to be.

Looks like you want something like CFBundleCopyBundleURL(CFBundleGetMainBundle()) .

For Qt, I'd say QApplication::applicationDirPath() + ../../.. or Qt5's QStandardPaths::ApplicationsLocation are your best bets.
