Create exe with other files

Post by chexmix » Sat Dec 08, 2018 6:24 pm

I've created GUIs for Powershell scripts using xaml files and dlls. Can these be packaged as a single exe with powershell studio? If not a single exe can it create an installer with an exe and install the dependent files?

The executable doesn't merge and extracted files, because the behavior is discouraged by Microsoft and antivirus software. Microsoft recommends using MSI installers. And yes, you can use the MSI installer to include all the dependent files with the executable.
