DLL's are meant to run your system. EXE's are meant to run "ON" you system...I don't understand why you are wanting to do this but it's not possible to my knowledge.

You can merge an exe and dll together so it won't require anything extra on a system, is that what you are trying to do?

You can cheat and change .dll to .exe (sarcasm)


can you explain the reasoning what you are trying to do. Maybe we can point you to another solution.

You can wrap an exe file in a dll by writing a dll that uses shell.execute to execute the exe file. Not really a good idea though. Dll's are design to run in-process and exe files run in their own process. This would be a hugly inefficient way to do it and any errors or UI interaction that the exe uses will be out of your control.
