VB.NET Process.start() Run Embedded Resource File (Exe,Bitmap,Audio,Txt)

VB.NET tutorials : How to Process.start() Method to Run Embedded Resource File (Exe,Bitmap,Audio,Txt) using .NET for beginners

VB.NET For Beginners - How can i run (Exe, Txt, Audio, Images) Files from Embedded/Resources without extracting to file first using vb.net? If you want to execute an executable embedded file for example the .EXE files into your program, without extracting it to disk first, i think it's possible. But, you must know it is very, very, hard to do.
Please Read :
VB.NET Crud Operations with Metro Styles

What you have to do is, and note that I do not know all the details about this since I don't do this, but anyway :
  1. First you must Load the executable code into memory.
  2. Remap all addresses in the binary image, so that they're correct in relation to the base address you loaded the executable at.
  3. Possibly load external references, ie. other DLL's that executable needed.
  4. Then, Remap the addresses of those references.
  5. Possibly load references needed by the just loaded referenced DLL's
  6. Remap those dll's.
  7. Repeat 3 through 6 until done
  8. Call the code.
i think you can't do it, so please follow my thread and you will get the same value. i'll extract my embedded resource files to Disk, and then remove it.

Source Code Run Embedded Resource :

Imports System.IO ' using system IO namespaces
Public Class Form1
    Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        ' declare the file name in resources filder
        ' NETConverter.exe is our resource files
        Dim FilePath As String = Application.StartupPath & "\NETConverter.exe"
        Using MsiFile As New FileStream(FilePath, FileMode.Create)
            MsiFile.Write(My.Resources.NETConverter, 0, My.Resources.NETConverter.Length)
        End Using
        ' open the resources files
    End Sub
    Public Function ProcessRunning(ByVal name As String) As Boolean
        'Check if the process is runing. As ERROR handler.
        For Each CloseProcess As Process In Process.GetProcesses()
            If CloseProcess.ProcessName.StartsWith(name) Then
                'process found running!!! 
                Return False
            End If
        'process not found, So it is finaly been killed!!!
        Return True
    End Function

    Private Sub Form1_FormClosed(sender As Object, e As FormClosedEventArgs) Handles MyBase.FormClosed

        'To kill the NETConverter.exe Process.
        Dim MyProcess() As Process = System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcessesByName("NETConverter")
        For Each s As Process In MyProcess
            ' kill the process
        'To delete the NETConverter.exe file from the directory.
        If ProcessRunning("NETConverter") Then
            Dim fileDeleted As String = My.Application.Info.DirectoryPath + "\NETConverter.exe"
            If File.Exists(fileDeleted) = True Then
            End If
        Else : Form1_FormClosed(sender, e)
        End If
    End Sub
End Class
