Yeah, we have an attribute stored for a module called: AbsoluteDataPath
which will return the directory the fullpath to the datafiles. It's
built in SWMgr. There is duplicate code in src/mgr/installmgr.cpp that
does the same thing (which should be removed and used AbsoluteDataPath,
but give the algorithm more concisely).
Hope this helps,
