Read the included .txt file from a compiled .EXE file

1. I am compiling a matlab file using mcc, however I have issues reading a .txt file that I want to go with it (a configuration file).

According to this, http://www.mathworks.com/support/solutions/en/data/1-1MHFE8/, I have to get the path to the file by using

fullfile(ctfroot, mfilename, 'mydata.txt')

a) This technique is valid if the .m file and the .EXE file have the same name. If someone changes the filename of the .EXE file that I distribute, then this won't work.

Is there a workaround? How do I get the name of the executable, on a deployed .EXE?
