Would it be possible to write data to an executable as it's executing? My end result is to update the embedded resources inside the executable. For example, inside an executable, I'd have a resource string that lists the last startup time. After the application is closed, it would update the resource string. Is this possible?

Yes, Create a string property in Settings(Project Properties > Settings).

And then you can access it like this

string tvalue = Properties.Settings.Default.YourPropertyName;

and you can save it, in FormClosing this

Properties.Settings.Default.YourPropertyName = "Some other text";
