    That's a really bad idea.

    What if there is a permission set granted to the assembly based on the
hash? Or if the assembly has a strong name? Verification of the assembly
goes out the window now.

Why don't you duplicate the EXE, embed the resources in the copy, and
replace the running exe with the new one, when they exit the application?

If that is the case, then this is not possible. Changing the assembly at
runtime is a bad, bad idea. If you need to manage resources (and I use
this term not in the .NET space, but as a general term) in a dynamic
manner, then you should have some sort of storage solution to do that.

    Hope this helps.
