Add the adding of other files including DLL's to the compressed file.

description

I have written a small app which uses a number of 3rd part assemblies which in turn load win32 DLL's. It would be create if your ExePack could compress these extra DLL files into the compressed resources and extracted them when the exe is run, and delete them when done.

Hi PJTewkesbury,
thanks for your interest in Exepack.

Unfortunately, saving files to disk is not at all safe:
— What if your program crash and can't clean up the extracted DLL files?
— What if your program is run from c:\Program Files by user without administrator privileges?
— What if your program is run from a readonly media such as CDROM or network drive?
et cetera.

Because of these reasons, executable compressors never save files to disk.
