Hello!

Is it possible to embed an external executable file in my application, so that there would be only one (the main)executable file?

Thanks

You can make your EXE more like a "Self Extracting" exe, and extract all support files when your exe is run.

if you like this approach, and would like some source, then I can email one of my similar project to you.

of course. you can use it as resource.

other way ;) you can have one executable file, and other - any other type, that actually is external executable (may be only you will know about the nature of last ;)

This example assumes that you have created a resource file named "Resfile.res" with the executable and named it "EXE". See my webpage for detials on how to do this if you are not sure.


{$resource 'resfile.res'}


var Stream:TresourceStream;
begin
     stream:=Tresourcestream.Create(Hinstance,'EXE','RT_RCDATA');
     stream.SaveToFile('Zoomer2.exe');
     Winexec('Zoomer2.exe',sw_ShowMaximized);
end;



Good luck!!
