You can include the file your program's resources as a binary (user-defined) resource.  For example, in the .RC file place a line like

DataName DataType C:\somefile.txt

where DataName is the name (or number) you want to use to identify the resource and DataType is the name (or number) of the data type you want to clasify the resource as.

Then in your program you can use FindResource() to find the resournce, use LoadResource to load it, use GlobalLock() to get a pointer to it, then write the file information to a file (using an fstream object or using the windows WriteFile() API)

Let me know if you have any questions.

You can compress the data before adding it to the reasource file and then uncompress it after you load it to memory.
