Here is an easy way to get your application path. It is very helpful to declare a String variable at the top of your cshtml or aspx page and use it to access any files with in your project.

String applicationRoot = ( Request.ApplicationPath == "/" ) ? String.Empty : Request.ApplicationPath;

Request.ApplicationPath will get us the ASP.NET application's virtual application root path on the server. Use the variable "applicationRoot" within <%= %> tag in aspx or with @ tag in razor pages.

For Example:

                                        < script src="@applicationRoot/Scripts/jquery-1.5.1.min.js" type="text/javascript">
                                        < /script>
