Executing C# Assembly in Memory Using Assembly.Load()

Here is a simple code to load a C# assembly (exe or dll) in memory from C#/

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Reflection;

namespace AssemblyLoader
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)

            Byte[] fileBytes = File.ReadAllBytes("C:\\Tools\\JustACommandWithArgs.exe");

            string[] fileArgs = { "arg1", "arg2", "argX" };

            ExecuteAssembly(fileBytes, fileArgs);

        public static void ExecuteAssembly(Byte[] assemblyBytes, string[] param)
            // Load the assembly
            Assembly assembly = Assembly.Load(assemblyBytes);
            // Find the Entrypoint or "Main" method
            MethodInfo method = assembly.EntryPoint;
            // Get the parameters
            object[] parameters = new[] { param };
            // Invoke the method with its parameters
            object execute = method.Invoke(null, parameters);
