Launching an EXE inside an EXE (EXE Wrapper)
Posted on 2002-03-18
1. I have an Executable program which my company wishes to distribute.
2. We have some security key software which checks the parallel port for a security device. I can access the security device from either C++ or VB.
Objective: Write a simple program which checks the status of the device, if Present it launches the Executable program. I have check stuff down, I just need to launch the EXE.
I would like NOT to create a temp file because then someone could possibly copy that file and start running versions of our program with out paying for a security key.
I assume there is a way to append my checking program (EXE1)to the beginning of the distributing program (EXE2) then start the 2nd running by executing an instruction in the beginning of the (EXE2)
Any other ideas are welcome.
