In my .NET 3.5 WinForm solution, I put a bunch key/value pairs in the Resources.resx file, which my Solution Explorer shows it is under /MyProject/Properties with the AssembleInfo.cs file. My Resources.resx "Build Action" is set to "Embedded Resource" (because I want to protect the values from the end user).

How do I retrieve these key/value pairs in C#? I was doing something like this for the Web.config AppSettings, is there something like this for the Resource.resx file? Also do I have to specify the location or can it be arbitrary since it is embedded.
foreach (string item in ConfigurationManager.AppSettings.AllKeys)
{
    //DO SOMETHING HERE
}

Here's an example

#
// specify your resource file name
#
        string resourceFile = file;
#
        // get the path of your file
#
        string filePath = System.AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory.ToString();
#
        // create a resource manager for reading from
#
        //the resx file
#
        ResourceManager resourceManager = ResourceManager.CreateFileBasedResourceManager(resourceFile, filePath, null);
#
        // retrieve the value of the specified key
#
        resourceValue = resourceManager.GetString(key);

It's event easier since you say the string is in the properties of the project. You can use a syntax like
global::YOUR_PROJECT_NAME.Properties.Resources.YOUR_STRING_KEY

just start typing global:: and the intellisense will kick in
