Hi Experts,

I have this problem:
I created a new project and I added two embedded picture files to it.
But when I call System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetFile("lock_closed.jpg")
I've got a null value returning from the GetFile method.

Try it without the extension:
System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetFile("lock_closed")

Open in new window
