    I came across Vanara not long ago, very comprehensive library set to avoid importing/declaring everything yourself: dahall/Vanara: A set of .NET libraries for Windows implementing PInvoke calls to many native Windows APIs with supporting wrappers.
  • Looking for ideas about securing automated scripts.

    This is an advanced concept and should be contemplated if you feel confortable with C# programming. You can extend the Antimalware Scan Interface (AMSI). Check the development documentation. Use Vanara to extend the functionality.
  • Should you use c# for memory manipulation

    I have a lot of C# P/Invoke / interop experience. Almost everything is possible in C#, I swear. Just keep in mind that C/C++ users have Windows.h include (meta-include which references thousands of another useful includes) that contain every single public fuction, structure or enum definition, i. e. you just go ahead and use it (while having to link against necessary libs correctly ofc). When you do the same thing in C# you have to P/Invoke through all this stuff by yourself. Consider taking a look at Vanara.PInvoke (https://github.com/dahall/Vanara), these packages might help you a lot in case you do not want to dive that deep.

    Interesting that it was built in .Net and appears to be using WPF with a few improvements[1].

    It also refers to Vanara[2] which looks interesting as a safe utility wrapper to the Windows API.
