Adding resources to compiled .exe

Recommended Posts

Using AutoIt3Wrapper under the "Res Add Files" I place the whole path to the file I want to compile with the application. Now how to I get to the file within the .exe?



I added this line but now how do I get the path to this .png file? I checked the Help file with AutoIt3Wrapper but it uses DllCall to play the sound which doesn't instruct me how to get to the file path.

Trying to avoid FileInstall(), I would like to not create any temp files on the computer. Plus this would be a great learning experiance! Thanks for the help in advance!

Check out Zedna's Resources UDF - it allows you to use the items you have put in the resource table. :oops:

Thank you once again! You gave me direction and I figured it out.

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_File_Add=C:UsersRogueScriptsResourcebackground.jpg, rt_rcdata, BACKGROUND

$cPic = GUICtrlCreatePic("", 224, 340, 120, 60)
_ResourceSetImageToCtrl($cPic, "BACKGROUND", $rt_rcdata)
