How can you get the runtime path if you can be run 2 ways?

import os
import sys

config_name = 'myapp.cfg'

# determine if application is a script file or frozen exe
if hasattr(sys, 'frozen'):
    application_path = os.path.dirname(sys.executable)
elif __file__:
    application_path = os.path.dirname(__file__)

config_path = os.path.join(application_path, config_name)
