Is there a file size limit to what can be embedded into an exe?

Mar 15 '13 at 11:56

I created a shell exe in C++ to get around the /DYNAMICBASE default of Yes in VS2012 with C#. With that said, I am using C# to embed a zip file into that shell exe using AddEmbedded().

The C++ OpenMyEmbedded works fine on smaller sizes such 50Mb, but when I tried a large 800Mb+ file, it returns an error that it cannot find the resource. I am guessing there is a file size limit?
