I want to create a patcher/installer type program. I have 3 files that need to be embedded or stored in a file. Two files need to be extracted when user clicks a button and one of those two files need to be run with a parameter when the button is clicked and last file needs to be extracted when program closes down. All 3 files need to be able to be updated in the program.

I have seen this done in C#, such as here although, I cannot seem to figure out how to do this in VB.NET. For some background, I have created a custom ComboBox control as a .dll, and I need to implement it in another .dll(ArcMap Component)

I have a zip file and I added it to my program's resource folder. I set the properties to embedded resource.Now when I type my.resources. ...in the list the name of that file does not come but other image files comes.I want to extract the zip file to a folder at runtime. I have done that before if I add zip file to my solution. But if the zip file is added into my resources folder (right click in resources, add, existing item) then how to get it from there.
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.
I am trying to make a program that will will make it easier for me to access some of my smaller frequently used program. I am new to Visual Basic and just discovered how to embed a .exe file into the project. I just dont know how to open it now.Basically there is a button and when it is clicked it needs to open up a .exe file, lets just call it 1.exe.I have looked around everywhere on how to do this and all I found was some resourcemanager commands .
Is the any way I can embed a referenced .dll as an embedded resource? Basically so I just have 1 file on compiling, rather than a EXE and a .dll. I've tried ILMerge, but it doesn't support WPF assemblies.
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 ?
I embedded a file as a resource into my assembly, and use the following:
Dim NameSpc As String = Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetName().Name.ToString() Dim FileName As String = NameSpc + "." + Form1.LanguageSelection.Text + ".txt" Dim address As System.IO.Stream = _ Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetManifestResourceStream(FileName)
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.
I'm using the following code to reference an embedded resource at runtime (it's a DLL that I can't package with my app for policy reasons). I need to add a second resource and do the same exact thing.

I have a problem with VB 2010. In my project, I have 2 embedded resources that I want to save to disk. Both are of type System.Drawing.Icon (*.ico file).I tried searching all over Google, and found no threads that helped me out.Either I need to figure out: How to convert a System.Drawing.Icon to a 1-dimensional array of Byte()How to use a System.IO.Stream to save the icon using My.Resources.<resourcename>.Save(outputStream as System.IO.Stream)Any other method that may work
I have a project and I have a word document added to the Resource list. Since I need this document when the project is deployed, I have set the Compile option to Embedded Resource. However, what I would like to do is, on some event, I would like to update the Word document.Is it possible ?

I have ashort (1.3MB) video clip set up with the Build Actiontent, and Copy to Output Directory as Copy Always.I am displaying the clip using mciSendString calls, which is working fine.However, I have been asked to change the delivery method so that the video file needs the Build Action to be set to EmbeddedResource and Copy to Output Directory as Do Not Copy , so I need to find a way to write the file to disc on demand so I can play it, then delete it when the form closes.
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?
I have a resource file named WonderlandManifest, and the filename is WonderlandManifest.exe. I want to extract it to a temp folder and then run it. But the code I have doesn't extract it to the temp.[code]
So i created resource file New --> new file --> Native Resource Template Then added icons with custom id, like "x", "u_100", .. so i understand, what the files (in my case icons) is.. And i saved as 32-bit resource file (*.res) So i have a question, how can i use these files inside of resource file in my apps? i know how to add icons in to my app.. Me.Icon = New Icon(C:/icon.ico)
can anyone please explain to me how I get the file path to an embedded video resource file I have?Currently I know how to get this while debugging, but I am unsure how to refer to it when built.It needs to work no matter where the application files are.[code]
I have a tar.gz file which contains other tar.gz files. For example: file1.gz contains a.gz, b.gz, c.gx, and so on.I can read tar.gz files which have no embedded gz files. However, I need the ability to read embedded gz files. The following is a code snippet which reads .gz files which are not embedded - this works fine. how I can read embedded gz files?
For Each fi As FileInfo In di.GetFiles("*.gz") fullPath = dirpath + "" + fi.ToString dirInstream = New GZipStream(File.OpenRead(fullPath), CompressionMode.Decompress)
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.
