    Question deleting running .exe


    i want my exe file to save itselfe with the contents of a textfield added at the end.
    for a beginner like me it was hard work to make this working. but i got it done.
    no i have the problem that the prog cannot overwrite itselfe while the file is still running. i think windows wont let me:-(
    what can i do?

    copyFile the running exe to a temp .exe, then do the changes to that, then copy it back.
