I need help with making a single EXE- installation file in Visual Studio 2019. When I publish my app for Windows (From a CD-ROM or DVD-Rom) I am getting one folder and 2 files.
Application File (folder)
Application. Application Manifest
setup. Application (.exe)
In “Application File”-folder I have some txt-file that needs to be when every time the application starts or with installation. The application read the txt-file (that includes registered date) and compare it with current date and check if the user-license is still valid.
What I need help with?
- To make only one exe-file for my customer. By clicking the single exe-file a user should install the application on the windows. It is no mater after installation if it creates the “Application File”-older.
- Is it possible to hide or make it unreadable the txt-file for user from the “Application File”-folder?
