Embed FSUIPCClient.dll in .EXE


Recommended Posts

Not with Visual Studio. You can download a tool called ILMerge that will merge the .exe and the dlls into a single .exe after they are compiled by VS. It's a command line utility but it's quite simple to use.


You can get it here:




Here is an example of the command to merge my example project .exe with the FSUIPCClient.dll. This is run from the folder with the two files in, e.g. the bin/release folder, so 'cd' there first.

"C:\program files (x86)\microsoft\ilmerge\ilmerge.exe" FSUIPCCLientExample_CSharp.exe FSUIPCClient.dll /out:ExampleMerged.exe /target:winexe /targetplatform:v4 /log:mergelog.log /ndebug

After the ilmerge.exe command, list the name of the main .exe followed by all the dlls you want to merge (I just have one in this example).


Set the /out: parameter to the name you want your single .exe to be.


Then add the other options, but make sure you set the target platform correctly, i.e. if you're targeting version 2 of the .NET runtime then you would need /targetplatform:v2. In my example I was targeting version 4.0.
