Extracting files from an EXE

P: n/a
Hi All,
I have a small exe app ( basic a dialog box) that when lauched needs to
"copy" some files in a directory chosen by the user (within the dialog). I
cannot use an installation package because there are some particular tasks
to be done from the exe.
Anyhow I was wondering if it possibile to include files within the (C#)exe
and then extract them from the exe when launched...sort of an installation.
I was thinking to add them as resources but I do not know how to extract
them.

Please any hint will be appreciated

Thank you
Zagor

Sounds like Self-extracting archive functionality. You might consider
searching for that on Google.

This page "http://www.dart.com/archivedotnet.asp" provides a commercial
solution. Might prove useful.
