Override `child_process.execFile` asar patch for `child_process.exec`
NodeJS implements `child_process.exec` by simply passing the whole command to `child_process.execFile`. See: - https://github.com/nodejs/node/blob/master/lib/child_process.js#L90 - https://github.com/nodejs/node/blob/master/lib/child_process.js#L99 Electron patches `child_process.execFile` to add support for `asar` archives by injecting logic that extracts the required files from the `asar` to a temporary location before delegating the work to the original `child_process.execFile`. In order to decide whether to inject the custom `asar` extracting logic, Electron makes use of a helper function called `splitPath()`. See: - https://github.com/electron/electron/blob/master/lib/common/asar.js#L37 If the first argument of the returned array equals `true`, means that the path is considered to be an `asar` archive, and thus the extraction logic takes place. The problem is that if the command passed to `child_process.execFile` *contains* a path to an asar archive, padded with other commands/arguments, `splitPath()` will consider it to be an `asar` archive, and will try to extract it, throwing a rightfully `Invalid package` error.
