How to launch an exe from my.resouces as a process RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have added a Vb6 exe to my appllication resources, now i want to launch that EXE via the Process namespace. Process.start(my.resources.EXENAME) but I cant figure out how to pass in the my.resources so the Process will start that embedded binary. Any suggestions Thanks!

  • That's not possible, Windows requires executables to be a file on disk.  Programs that make .exes appear from nowhere are universally classified as viruses, regardless of their intent.
