How do I get the file path from where I am selecting file for uploading using File Uploader?

You cannot. This is one of the Flash Player security restrictions. But this is a good thing because that means that your clients have more resons to trust you. The location of the file is private information and there is no real reason for you to need to know this.

I agree with you. However when I use normal HTTPPostedFile in .Net, I can get fully qualified name including directory information. Why cannot I get it through this?

Well first of all you should ask Adobe, not me, but my guess is that they wanted to make it more secure than simple form post.
