FM app meaning a database? runtime? Location of database? on a hosting machine accessed by other client computers on the local network?

On a Mac using FM Pro 12 Advanced. Not hosted by a server. By FM App I mean the database application I developed which is located on my Mac (no hosting machine accessed by others). I am looking for the path to where my FM application is located but I do not want it to include the application itself in the result (I just want the path up to the last subfolder in which the app resides).
Here is a calculation to strip the filename out of the path.
Let( [ x=Get(FilePath);
