Deployment / Resources
Posted on 2005-04-05
I have written my first C# app that includes a number of background images, button images and avi movies.
Right now I read images and movies from a folder structure on disk.
The disadvantage is that everybody can simply exchange or manipulate these images.
Is it possible to included all the resources into a binary resource file and access them from there? What do I have to rearrange in my project to do it?
The next question:
I would like to deploy the app in such a way that .NET framework is included in the installation. How to do this?
I need some practical step-by-step advise how to handle this installer building, so-to-speak some condensed info for beginners. There are endless complicated articles on the web. I need to get started hands-on and all the C# books I have also do not comment on deploying my first application...
Thank you very much in advance for helping!
