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.
