Recommended Posts

Found a nice snippet

it's from the book


Packing a single-file executable:

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Reflection;
using System.Collections.Generic;public class Loader

= new Dictionary <string, Assembly>(); static void Main()
AppDomain.CurrentDomain.AssemblyResolve += FindAssem;
} static Assembly FindAssem (object sender, ResolveEventArgs args)
string shortName = new AssemblyName (args.Name).Name;
if (libs.ContainsKey (shortName)) return libs [shortName]; using (Stream s = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().
GetManifestResourceStream ("Libs." + shortName + ".dll"))
byte[] data = new BinaryReader (s).ReadBytes ((int) s.Length);
Assembly a = Assembly.Load (data);
libs [shortName] = a;
return a;
}public class Program
public static void Go()
// Run main program...
