Try to open it for read access and if you succeed you can copy it:

#include <iterator>
#include <fstream>
{
     std::ifstream f(argv[0], ios::in | ios::binary);
     if (f)
     {
          std::ofstream fout("targetfile.exe", ios::out | ios::binary);
          assert(fout.good());
          copy(std::istreambuf_iterator<char>(f), std::istreambuf_iterator<char>(),
               std::ostreambuf_iterator<char>(fout));
     }
}
