Single Executable wrapper for main app and all dependencies ?

Posted 13 March 2018 - 02:35 AM

I am hoping someone here might know of a product or process that would enable me to build all required DLL's and the main EXE into one Portable EXE

The objective being of course to have that one EXE available to run in isolation from a USB flash drive.

I have an app I created many years back that has DLL's in the usual locations, and also Drivers for some hardware the app uses. Drivers I can probably have installed on the PC's however I am ideally wanting to have just a single EXE that has been created somehow with some software app of some sort (hoping it exists) that just bundles/wraps everything into as I say, one single EXE.

thanks

In VB.NET I know you can set references to copy local so that helps. Maybe check if vb6 has something like that.

You could use something like VMWare ThinApp or Spoon (might be TurboStudio now??), albeit I'm not sure if it's free, which will containerise you app and runtimes.

Maybe something from here may help
