    Hi,

    Is it possible in anyway to load a file into memory and then run it
    from there? I am working on a file compressor, that can compress and encrypt and save
    multiple files as an exe file that can then run the compressed files
    after unpacking them to a temp folder. The problem is that I have to
    unpack the files to the hard-disk and then run them from there, making
    them vulnerable to user that may try to get the original (unprotected)
    files.

    So the user shouldn't have access to the file operations in the
    background. So I need to keep the original unpacked files hidden from
    the user, until after they are opened by the unpacker and then deleted.
    So users should have no kind of access to the files (should not see
    them, open them, should not be able to modify or copy them) but the
    unpacker should be able to run them. (that is why I think that the
    memory is the best solution)

    So is there any way to protect them, like unpacking them directly to
    memory and then run them from there? Something like a virtual disk in
    memory?

    Thanks.
