Hi,

I'm creating a simple installer for my application and I need to embed an EXE file to extract it to the Program Files/My App Folder when my "installer" is launched.

How can this be accomplished?

Please help.

there are several ways:
1) http://www.ciuly.com/delphi/basicSecurity/integrityCheck/index.html but instead of the md5hash you will use the exe and as I read the md5hash in that example you will read the exe and save it to program files
2) add the exe as a resource:
