Embedded Resource Question

Apr 12, 2011

Is there any way to include an entire directory structure as an embedded resource? For example I have a file system folder with files and other folders inside of it. I need my application to recreate that directory structure and all files. If this can't be done, I suppose I could zip the entire directory tree and include the zip file as the embedded resource, but I would need to extract that zip file to the file system without 3rd party tools, and I have to use the .NET 2.0 Framework so I'm not sure unzipping capabilities exist.

Cannot Make Xml File An Embedded Resource

Sep 29, 2011

In Visual Studio 2008 I tried to add xml file as embedded resource. During compilation the embedded resource item was simply ignored and the resource I expected to find in resulting dll was not there. I tried several times with no positive effect. Finally I decided to rename the file, so it does not have xml extension. As soon as I changed the extension to (it was .en in this case) Visual Studio started picking the file up and embedding it as part of the assembly. I could not find any any documentation on that odd behavior. Does anyone know if that is expected, and, if so, why ?

Iterating Through An Embedded Resource File?

Jun 27, 2010

I seem to be having some trouble finding anything to help me iterate through objects in an embedded resource file.What I have got, is a bunch of resource files that each have a library of sound wav files.What I'm trying to do is cycle through them all and add their name to something like a list box.I found a couple of snippets online that do this but for external resources. Here is what they do.

' Create a ResXResourceReader for the file items.resx.
Dim rsxr As ResXResourceReader
rsxr = New ResXResourceReader("Samples\Kicks.resx")


1. It still needs a phisical file in the debug folder (I have them in a folder called samples within the debug folder.)

2. It gives me this error.QuoteResX file Could not find a part of the path 'C:\Users\sed10711\Desktop\Sequencer Interface\Sequencer Mock Interface\bin\resources\kicks\kickdrum1.wav'. Line 123, position 5. cannot be parsed.

Wpf - .NET Make A Copy Of An Embedded File Resource To The Local Drive

Apr 8, 2010

I'm creating a WPF application in VB.NET with the 3.5 Framework. (If you provide an example in C#, that's perfectly fine.)

In my project I have a Template for an MS Access database. My desired behavior is that when the users clicks File-->New, they can create a new copy of this template, give it a filename, and save it to their local directory.

The database already has the tables and some starting data needed to interface with my application (a user-friendly data editor)

I'm thinking the approach is to include this "template.accdb" file as a resource in the project, and write it to a file somehow at runtime?

How To Get Location Of Embedded Icon Files As String

Oct 31, 2010

My program toggles an existing IE add-on between enabled and disabled. At the same time, it creates a shortcut to itself in the Quick Launch folder using one of two icons which reflect whether the next click is a toggle on or toggle off. I store the two icons in the same folder as the targeted executable, and everything works fine, but I would rather have these two files embedded. I know how to embed them. The problem is locating them. At the moment I use:

Dim MyShortcut As IWshRuntimeLibrary.IWshShortcut
MyShortcut = WshShell.CreateShortcut(QuickLaunchVariable & "Toggle.lnk")
MyShortcut.TargetPath = path/executable
MyShortcut.IconLocation = path/iconfile

MyShortcut.IconLocation requires a string and I don't know how to get to the location of an embedded file as a string. There is no MyShortcut.Icon which would allow me to simply refer to the embedded file.
