I don't see your followup question here. What I got via email was:

what does the compiler do with images, files and sound fragments. Do they come in a separate file and are installed on the client pc?

There are many tutorials on this so I'll note http://www.csharp411.com/embedded-image-resources/ which is one place the resource could be. There's code to test if it's in that area. I'll also note in passing tools that let us explore the usual EXE and DLL files.

I'm sticking with my short answer here that such is "compiled into" the app's EXE and DLL files. That said a commercial app I did long ago externalized the resources so the company could change the logo bitmap without having to edit the EXE or DLL or contracting me to issue a new version of the app. Again, this goes beyond my short answer so I pause here.
