Deployment :: Can An Executable Program Create An Executable File

May 17, 2012

I have a program that outputs a file. I want the user to be able to just double-click the output file and launch the program, just like Word and Excel. In Word for instance, one doesn't necessarily have to open WORD then click on File--> Open and locate another Word doc. He can just go to the folder and open the Word doc. I want to implement the exact scenario in my program.

So far I have tried creating TextFile and added it to the Resources. On FormLoading, I simply I stream-read the Resouce file, but I can't write to the Resource on FormClosing, since the Resource is ReadOnly. Also, the Resource is built & compiled so I suppose you can't add anything to it at run time.How you lunch an output file without launching the Executable program that created it?

Executable On Vista - Open The Executable It Goes To A "WindowsApplication1?

Jun 1, 2009

I have an executable that I was able to get working on all XP machines by registering all the .dll's associated with it.On Vista, however, I go through the exact same registration process but right when I open the executable it goes to a "WindowsApplication1 has stopped working" dialog. I registered the DLLs in the SysWOW64 folder. I also ran Dependency Walker which came up with IEFrame.dll as flagged, don't know if that is relevant though.

IDE :: Install Text File In Same All Program Folders As App Executable

Jan 27, 2009

I would like to install a readme.txt file in the same All Programs folder as my application using ClickOnce deployment. The Build Action property is set to "Content" and the Copy to Output Directory is set to "Copy always" for this file. In the Application Files dialog box, Publish Status=Include for the file. After running setup.exe, the app is installed properly in the Start/All Programs/MBCI folder, but the readme.txt file is not there. Is the file installed somewhere else?

Way To Publish Program So It Is Self-contained In A Single Executable File?

Apr 20, 2009

I am working on a relatively simple program in VB.NET. I am trying to make the installation process as simple as possible for the user.I know its possible to use the executable from the debug directory as a stand alone executable, but are there any drawbacks to this approach? For example, if the user does not have .NET on their machine, the program will not run. Is there a way to publish the program so it is self-contained in a single executable file?

Generate Executable From An Executable?

Jul 24, 2011

I Actually want to provide a new service which requires creating executables on the fly from executables generated in vb.net. For example lets say I have a form with a textbox and in that textbox we pass an argument which is for example the serial of the product, then we have a button which once clicked will generate an executable on the fly which has also a textbox requiring that serial to run? That was only an example but the main thing is how to generate that exe on the fly.

Running Executable Within Program?

Aug 5, 2009

I'm trying to run a program (mame.exe) within a vb program. Mame is a program that allows you to run old video games.  The games are stored in rom files.  If you want to run mame.exe from a dos prompt, the syntax is "c:/mame.exe [rom]".  The [rom] is the particular game you are running. I'm trying to create a front end menu from which I can execute games. 

I've tried:

Process.Start(
"c:/mamefiles/mame.exe [rom]")

and I get an error that says it can't find the file.

I tried

Process.Start(
"c:/mamefiles/mame.exe", "[rom]")
 
and it seems to start the program but immediately shuts down mame.I tried

Shell("c:/mamefiles/mame.exe [rom]")

and again it seems to start the program but immediately shuts down mame.

VS 2010 Program Crashes As Published Executable, Not As Program Running In Studio Or Express?

Jun 6, 2012

I wrote this VB program to be able to throw a device we developed into programming mode where we use an ATMEL Flip installer to upload new firmware. I can program one device after another running the application off of Visual Studio Express 2010 or Visual Studio 2010, but when I go to publish this file and run it on another machine, it becomes unstable and crashes after each upload. On those same computers if I run the raw unpackaged program under Visual Studio Express, the system does not crash, and I can program devices repeatedly.

Detect Which Executable Started Your Program?

Jun 13, 2009

I have a custom button in IE8 which starts up my program. Now what I wanted to do, was pass an arguement such as: 'myprogram.exe /ie'

From the IE8 button, and well my program will do rest from there. Now my program adds the button just fine, shows up fine, all that works. But each time i'd add an argument after my application path, IE8 would say it can't find the program. If you want to test this out, goto run, type in gpedit.msc, then 'User Configuration'->'Windows Settings'->'Internet Explorer Maintenance'->'Browser User Interface', and double click on 'Browser Toolbar Customizations'. And in the small window that pops up, is an option for adding custom buttons to IE. I was using this for testing purposes, since it was faster to edit a button here than in my program. When you add a button you choose the executable to link it to. But if you add any arguments after it, IE will simply not be able to find the program. Even if that same command works when you type it from 'run'.

So, now my question is, since apperntly you can't have any arguments in the button, is it possible to detect what executable starts your program? For instance, detect if iexplore.exe started up my program?

Create A Patch System Which Patches The Entire Executable?

I want to create a patch system which patches the entire executable. So like: You download my patch and it changes the code of the existing executable instead of replacing it. the reason why: I got an application which is already around the ~15MB and it will grow bigger (Like 200~300MB) so, I want to keep it compact.I've already read that patching an executable for only a string is quite easy, but, I got my doubts about actual code and resources.

Executing Another Executable File From VB?

Sep 15, 2010

I'm trying to make a program that has command buttons, each running a different file. I have added some files so far, but I encountered a problem with a couple of them.

For example, I want to run Zuma's Revenge! right from the program, but it is not working. If I run the game from outside the program, it runs perfectly, but when I try running it from the program, it keeps saying "Zumas Revenge! - Adventure has stopped working."

What really confused me, is that the game is running normally if I run it from its folder or by using the shortcut, while from the program it isn't.I'm using Windows 7, with Visual Basic 2010 Express.

'Here's the code I'm using:

Private Sub Zumas_Revenge_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Zumas_Revenge.Click
Process.Start(My.Application.Info.DirectoryPath & "umas Revenge! - AdventureumasRevengeAdventure.exe")
End Sub

Can The Code In A VB Executable File Be Viewed

Jun 21, 2010

Part of the app I am writing allows users to create an encrypted, password-protected output file that they can email safely to a central store. I can't have the users choose their own password for the encryption as the central store needs to access the contents of all the output files emailed to it. So there is one password that gets set within my vb app.I am worried that security will be compromised if the vb executable is somehow deconstructed? Is it possible to read the contents of an exe file (and thus find out the password)?

Use A Button (A) To Launch A Prompt Where User Selects Directory Path To An Executable Program?

Any tips as to the terms to use to search for answers, or links to topics regarding questions similar to mine, would be very appreciated. I have a wealth of info to read through, but I could use your knowledge to save myself time.Here is what I am trying to do:

Use a Button (A) to Launch a Prompt where User Selects Directory Path to an executable Program. The Selection is to be Persistent after the initial selection (saved in a settings file i assume?), and the Selected Path (or just "programname.exe") is to be Displayed in a Text Field (B).
