[mono-vb] VB Compiler Embed Resource file

vbnc is old now, and is not being maintained anymore.

I recommend using either vbc on Windows, or vbc from NET Core instead.

Best regards,

Subject: [mono-vb] VB Compiler Embed Resource file

I am trying to compile a vb program with an embedded Glade XML file as a resource using the mono vb compiler, version, using this command:

vbnc  -resource:TestForm1.glade TestForm1.vb

The program compiles and runs without any error however the TestForm1.glade file is not being embedded in the compiled exe

When I do same with the c# compiler mcs  -resource:TestForm1.glade TestForm1.cs the glade file is embedded in the compiled output exe

Is this a bug in the vb compiler i.e it fails to embed resource files?

I check to see whether the file is being embedded simply by opening the exe in Notepad++, with the c# compiler the xml is always there but has never worked with mono vb compiler.

If this is a bug is there any other way to embed a resource file in the exe?
