Hi,

I am building a windows application that has xml files with data inside. I would like to embed the files in the application so that whenever the application is deployed, the data in the xml files will always be available. I don't want to put the user in the trouble of looking for the files.
Can someone help?

You could add the files to your solution then on the properties for each file turn Copy Always on this way the files will always be in the output directory when the project is built

Also you can declare your resource as Embedded, so it will be distributed *inside* your .exe assembly. You will be responsible to extract from the assembly and copy to file.
