Hello

(Language C#, Visual  Studio 2005)

This is driving me nuts because it is something I've done before but can't recreate. I'm trying to:
1. Get the full path to where the embedded resources are.
2. Get the names of the embedded resource files.

using code-
            System.Reflection.Assembly thisExe =
            System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly();
            string[] resources = thisExe.GetManifestResourceNames();

Almost gets me the names of everything including:
[programname].Properties.Resources.resources

But I can't retrieve the file names that are contained within the ".resources"

Thanks a lot (and please don't forget about question 1)

If you have the full resource name, you might be able to use Assembly.GetManifestResourceStream, and use an appropriate stream reader to get the contents.

try this:

System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetManifestResourceNames();
