When launching a compiled application, the app look in the folder it is launched from for a file with the same name of the splash screen and shows it.
This causes several unwanted behavior such as:
  • If the user moves the app to another folder, he needs to copy the splashscreen file together with it
  • If the app doesn't find a file with the set name, the splash screen will not show up
  • The user can MODIFY the splash screen !!!
  • The user can even replace the splash screen with a new one as long as he saves the new splash with the same name of the old one
Is there a way to embed the splash screen in the .exe file (as it happens for other images in the app) so that it is hard-coded in the exe and it is unmutable?

Hi Luca, it seems there's no straightforward way to change this behavior.
