Get file path for Windows Phone?


I used the below for Android Project to get a file path for my DB file. How would I do this for Windows Phone 8 Project?

string dbPath = Path.Combine(System.Environment.GetFolderPath(System.Environment.SpecialFolder.Personal), "db_file");

    Found it!

    Here's the final code:

            string dbPath = Path.Combine(Windows.Storage.ApplicationData.Current.LocalFolder.Path, "test");
            connection = new SQLiteConnection(new SQLitePlatformWinRT(), dbPath);

    It appears doesn't work with Windows Phone 8. I thought it should be compatible. Below is the error messages.

    An exception of type 'System.DllNotFoundException' occurred in SQLite.Net.Platform.WinRT.DLL but was not handled in user code

    Additional information: Unable to load DLL 'sqlite3': The specified module could not be found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007E)
