Hi All.

I use this code to write resource to exe file :

VB.NET:
[COLOR=#00008B]Module[/COLOR][COLOR=#000000] ResourceWriter
    [/COLOR][COLOR=#00008B]Private[/COLOR][COLOR=#00008B]Function[/COLOR][COLOR=#000000] ToPtr[/COLOR][COLOR=#000000]([/COLOR][COLOR=#00008B]ByVal[/COLOR][COLOR=#000000] data [/COLOR][COLOR=#00008B]As[/COLOR][COLOR=#00008B]Object[/COLOR][COLOR=#000000])[/COLOR][COLOR=#00008B]As[/COLOR][COLOR=#000000] IntPtr

But The problem is here! when run project in Line :

VB.NET:

I get this error msg :

VB.NET:
[COLOR=#000000]An unhandled exception of type [/COLOR][COLOR=#808080]'System.ArgumentNullException' occurred in WindowsApplication1.exe[/COLOR]


Where is problem?
Is there any other way to attach resource and receive that on other exe?
In this one i dont know the resource attach with what name and what kind!
I want just some txt and do my condition by that for example attach 'Resource1="true"' and i will check Resource1 if is "true"!

Also tried using mono.cecil bu could not do any thing good!


thank you best regards.
