How can I combine multiple 3rd party DLL files and my VB app into a single exe?
Posted on 2012-03-12
I have a VB.Net 2010 application using multiple 3rd party DLLs and would like to compile this into a single binary executable for distribution. I've searched around and cannot find much of anything on this that is less than 10 years old outside of a few references to ILMerge, and most indications say that will not work with outside DLLs or VB; the DLLs need to be .net assemblies.
Has anything come available that will combine everything into a single exe file for VB apps? I'm using vb in the vs.net 2010 Pro package...
