Resource Hacker is a utility to view, modify, add, rename and delete resources in Windows executables and resource files. Furthermore, Resource Hacker also includes an integrated resource compiler and decompiler.
Here are some key features of "Resource Hacker":

· View resources in Win32 executable files (*.exe, *.dll, *.cpl, *.ocx) and in Win32 resource files (*.res) in both their compiled and decompiled formats.

· Extract (save) resources to file in: *.res format; as a binary; or as decompiled resource scripts or images. Icons, bitmaps, cursors, menus, dialogs, string tables, message tables, accelerators, Borland forms and version info resources can
· be fully decompiled into their respective formats, whether as image files or *.rc text files.

· Modify (rename or replace) resources in executables. Image resources (icons, cursors and bitmaps) can be replaced with an image from a corresponding image file (*.ico, *.cur, *.bmp),
· a *.res file or even another *.exe file. Dialogs, menus, stringtables, accelerators and messagetable resource scripts (and also Borland forms) can be edited and recompiled using the internal resource script editor.
· Resources can also be replaced with resources from a *.res file as long as the replacement resource is of the same type and has the same name.

· Add new resources to executables. Enable a program to support multiple languages, or add a custom icon or bitmap (company logo etc) to a program's dialog.

· Delete resources. Most compilers add resources into applications which are never used by the application. Removing these unused resources can reduce an application's size.'s New in This Release:

· 32bit Resource Files (*.res) can now also be viewed and edited.
· Added support for the following Dialog extended style flags: WS_EX_LAYERED, WS_EX_NOINHERITLAYOUT, WS_EX_LAYOUTRTL and WS_EX_NOACTIVATE.
· All resource language ids (except those for cursors and icons) can now be easily changed.
Bug Fix:

· LBS_NOINTEGRALHEIGHT and LBS_MULTICOLUMN listbox style flags in dialogs previously could not be combined.
