Seems that comments on articles are not sent to the author anymore automatically. NetZ is still around, be it in a somewhat dormant state, the source code is available on GitHub but no one seems interested in it anymore, what a pity.
I did one simple test with a .NET 4.0 application, and got that working.
I know about ILMerge and Fody Costura, and have put those to good use already, the interesting thing about NetZ however is that it zips and encrypts your application which might offer some level of protection.
I share your pain, I have an installer that 'updates' a certain dll to a version that was released when the earth was hot. The worst thing is that version of the dll doesn't have voodoo for the program to work...
Applications that receive less than full trust from their host or sandbox are not allowed to call shared managed libraries unless the library writer specifically allows them to through the use of the AllowPartiallyTrustedCallersAttribute attribute. Therefore, application writers must be aware that some libraries will not be available to them from a partially trusted context. By default, all code that executes in a partial-trust sandbox and is not in the list of full-trust assemblies is partially trusted

I looks like I will be forced down the snake route, so as some one who has an ammount of Vis Studio experience (VB, VB.NET, C#) and a very solid background in C is there a route other than the Python for Beginners book I have gone through that basically give you an overview and simple examples rather than this is how you automate X with it. I mean I can write a text adventure, not automate things.
