Embed Dependent Assemblies

P: n/a
I'd like to embed some dependent assemblies in my exe as not to worry about
distribution.

I have come across a few examples in C#
(http://weblogs.asp.net/jdennany/arch...24/29035.aspx), but I have
been unsuccessful in translating them into VB.Net as my C skills are rather
poor.

Could someone post either links to VB.Net examples or an example itself to
perform the same functionality?

Thanks!

Applications will still require the .NET Framework, even if some components
used by it are embedded.

I'm afraid I wasn't clear. I do not mean .Net framework distribution, I was
referring to 3rd party or custom control distribution.

The tools I mentioned will work with DLLs. I just put the note because some
people think that they can remove the .NET Framework requirement by using
them.

While these utilities have shown to do the job, they are impeding on some
3rd party control licensing methods (meaning, they fail). I'd like to know
how to do this via code so I can compile directly.

Would someone be willing to post or reference some example VB.Net code?

Thanks!
