Can you explain more about what you're trying to do here?

What do you mean by "save to resource"?

Hello.

Well, if your intention is to load a file into the application's embedded resource, I'm afraid that this is not possible.

I think that the only way you could do something similar is to use reflection to recompile the current assembly with different resources, but this would create another executable.

If that's of you interest, I can do some research and post here.

But why exactly do you want to load the file into resource? You could create an XML file and insert the file into it as a base 64 string.

Hello.

Attached is a sample project demonstrating how to store resources in an external XML file.

It's very simple to do it, so I think you won't have problems in understanding it. However if you have any doubts just ask.

The application is programmed only to display SWF and some image formats (including GIF).

Before using, you may have to set the new path for the Shockwave Flash reference in the project settings (My Project > References). If you don't know where these files are located, delete the two Shockwave Flash references and click "Add...". On the reference selection form, go to the COM tab and find Shockwave Flash in the list. Select it and click OK. This should do it.

The project was made in Visual Studio 2010.
