Path issue in Direct-IO for developers (C#)

Hi.
I'm c# developer. One of my customers uses Primo Ramdisk (with Direct-IO method) and i cannot get file paths on that system (for apps that are installed on virtual disk). what i get is something like this:
"\Device\FancyRdRawPort0Target0\[app name]\..." that is not a standard form for file paths. There is no any problem in SCSI method. how can i solve this problem? is there any standard way to get file paths in Direct-IO method in c# ?

Thanks in advance

I'm sorry that I'm not familiar with C#. Do you grant your application administrative privileges which may be required to access DirectIO disks.

You have to configure the type as SCSI Disk because various software have serious problems with Direct-IO Disk, e.g. VMware won't start VMs.
