[Release] Resource Hacker 3.4.0.79 #6

Post by Kelsenellenelvian » Mon Jun 05, 2006 6:37 am

What is Resource Hacker?
Resource Hacker is a freeware utility to view, modify, rename, add, delete and extract resources in 32bit Windows executables and resource files (*.res). It incorporates an internal resource script compiler and decompiler and works on Win95, Win98, WinME, WinNT, Win2000 and WinXP operating systems.

Viewing Resources: Cursor, Icon, Bitmap, GIF, AVI, and JPG resource images can be viewed. WAV and MIDI audio resources can be played. Menus, Dialogs, MessageTables, StringTables, Accelerators, Delphi Forms, and VersionInfo resources can be viewed as decompiled resource scripts. Menus and Dialogs can also be viewed as they would appear in a running application.

Saving Resources: Resources can be saved as image files (*.ico, *.bmp etc), as script files (*.rc), as binary resource files (*.res), or as untyped binary files (*.bin).

Modifying Resources: Resources can be modified by replacing the resource with a resource located in another file (*.ico, *.bmp, *.res etc) or by using the internal resource script compiler (for menus, dialogs etc). Dialog controls can also be visually moved and/or resized by clicking and dragging the respective dialog controls prior to recompiling with the internal compiler.

Adding Resources: Resources can be added to an application by copying them from external resource files (*.res).

Deleting Resources: Most compilers add resources into applications which are never used by the application. Removing unused resources can reduce an application's size.
It installs to Programs files\Utilities\Resource hacker

There is a shortcut placed in your start menu under Utilities.

It also adds an entry in the SendTo section...

Sweet! I love it when people install things to a logical location. No sense in having 600 subdirectories under Program Files. Same for the Start Menu.

i figured out the problem with this addon, its quite simple...you gotta update the shortcut in the cab file(ResHacker) so it points to the new working dir:

target dir:
"%programfiles%\Utilities\Resource hacker\ResHacker.exe"


start in dir:
"%programfiles%\Utilities\Resource hacker"

do you still have build #4? cus for soem reason this one enters in confilc with other addons ,i dont understand why,its a prety straight forward addon, ive revised ure ini file and im no pro but all seems fine.ive tested alot of times with diferent combination of addons and finaly came to the conclusion that this paticular addons breaks my installs.if its not integrated all works fine.i realy like the send to reshack option.(example of things getting broken,siginet 'S adaware true addon dosent get installed,and normal unmodifyed ie6 dosent work,no ie7 addon/installer was applied. )

Sorry bober101 but I don't have that file anymore.

I did however rebuild the pack and simplify it even further if you would like to test this revision out...

This is one of the addons that I have been having issues with when used with my particular batch of addons. (As reported in this thread http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1954

Will test the new version and report back.

hi kel! this may be a bit too late but i just wanted to share that indeed i had problems with Kels_ResHack_v3.4.0.79_addon_build5 ... what i got was:
Files Needed:
The file "0x00000001" on [Unknown] is needed
... this happened at T-28 & best option was to Cancel which then jumped installation o T-22 minutes ... consequently, most of the addons didn't install, as well as ie7 & wmp11 ... it took me quite a while (lots of trials & errors) to identify this broke my install ... i am thankful though that Kels_ResHack_v3.4.0.79_addon_build6 finally resolved the issue ... thanks! :)

Yep that was the error with build 5... See before kel used a Reshack.lnk file to add the shortcut to sendto but then he swithced to profile items but he forgot to remove the entrie from copyfiles

Upgrade the addon to build 6 it fixed now
