Single-file executables in .NET Core 3Posted: September 22, 2019 Filed under: .NET Core | Tags: .NET Core, DevOps, MSIX, WPF 1 Comment
PublishSingleFile option in .NET Core 3 lets you package an application into a single executable (
.exe) file that contains all assemblies, resources, content files and other stuff that the app requires at runtime.

.exe file that you can simply double-click on to run the app. These single-file executables do however come with some gotchas.
