Default C# and MM Flash

I have recently joined the C# crowd and so far, I'm a bit torn. I really like C++, but not so much of VB. That was before I decided on doing a Flash interface for a windows app. So I found a tutorial with C# (VS .NET 2003) and Flash ActiveX. Unlike the C++ version of C++ and Flash, I cannot have just one file, unless you can present me a decent solution. When I compile the C# program, I have to have 2 .dll's and the swf in the same directory (well the swf can be anywhere, but it's nice to be in the same directory or a sub-directory). How can I import the swf as a 'resource' and have it available at run-time? In C++ you could just add it as a binary resource and then do a LoadResource or whatever. Also, how can I rid myself of these external dependencies (which is one reason why I didn't like VB (a load of dep.), and why I like C++ (no dep.))? Can I? Maybe import them as resources and load at run-time? In C++ you can just rely on the fact that end user has the ActiveX control for Flash (or include an installer and autodetect whether they have it installed or not). More appropiately, I should ask what these dll's are for. What are they for (dll's listed below)? I use C# for it's general simplicity, but if it's giving me this junk, then I'll just go to C++.

The Dlls you have mentioned here are the wrapers that .NET creates when u add a reference to the flash OCX or DLL files. U dont have to wory too much about them. C# (or .NET), however, does have a number of dependencies of its own, but the good news is that the .NET setup projects are quite helpfull in this regard and they let you take care of the dependencies latter on. Still, since you are new to C# I would say that you have to do a good deal of reading to get a proper understanding of how to get .NET programs to run in all viable environments, 'cuase simple things may look even simpler when done in .NET but when it comes to tweeking and tuning .NET gets the better of the best of the programmers.

C# does have resources and you can load SWFs as a resorce.
