Specifying Location Of Images For Ribbon (Relative Path)

I'm trying to specify the image source for ribbon images using relative syntax but having no luck.


If I use this:


button.LargeImage = new BitmapImage(new Uri(@"c:\\folderA\\folderB\\image.png") );


it works just fine. But it relies on absolute syntax, which is daft since it forces the code to be installed in a specific directory (or the images).


I've tried 


button.LargeImage = new BitmapImage(new Uri(@"images\\image.png", UriKind.Relative) );



button.LargeImage = new BitmapImage(new Uri(@"images/image.png", UriKind.Relative) ); 


and I've tried placing the images subdirectory with the png file relative to the assembly, to the project source folder and even relative to AutoCAD itself - and in none of the cases do I get an image.


Can anyone shed any light on this for me? I'd like the images subfolder to be relative to the compiled assembly.

here a sample of my code for create my name of file containing the data of my prog :


Dim objAssemblyInfo As ApplicationServices.AssemblyInfo = My.Application.Info

My.Settings.GlobalFichierConfig = objAssemblyInfo.DirectoryPath & "\" & _
objAssemblyInfo.Title + ".cfg"

 with the objAssemblyInfo you retrieve info of your Dll.
