Embed the files in the installation script with the CreateInstall installer. This command doesn't compress these files with other installation files. These files are embedded in the source code of the installation script. The content of each file is assigned to the specified variable. The files are not stored anywhere on the user's computer during the installation process. This feature can be useful when your script uses files with sensitive information. The set Embed Mode->In memory files must be textual files. Embedding a binary file is described below or set the Embed Mode->As temporary file.

How to embed a file by using the Source Code command
You can embed files in the installation script by using the Source code command and Gentee programming language. Below is an example of embedding a file and assigning it to a 'myfile' variable.
macrox_setstr ("myfile", "\<c:\myapp\data.txt>")
It is also possible to embed binary files in the script. In this case, use the 'buf' type variable.
buf myfile myfile = "\<c:\myfiles\myfile.dat>" print("Size: \(*myfile)")
