Combining two into one
Posted on 1999-01-08
I am wroking on a project, which is about to control some devices using PC com port. But the real part of the project was already done This part has a good Interface which has a look similiar to the device front panell, and this part also manages the controlling of device(capable of sending the commands, and requesting some info from the devices.) So it is good. (This part of the program is an exe and comes with the device on purchase.)
What I really want to do is that, write a simple interface in Delphi, create a form which asks some information to the user and then store this information to a log file and start the controller part. But I want to give one executable file to the user and want to combine these two exes (the one that already in hand and the one that I will write).
So is it posiible to manage this work.
PS. I know one way
I can modify my program in a way, that will make it extract
the controller exe , from a resource to disk and then start it.
But anyway I want to make the program look like as a whole one program, and do not want to involve into file managing stuff(extracting , executing and deleting the extracted portion from HD)
So any suggestion.
