The complete solution for resource editing!
What makes application files unique and different from each another? First
of all, it is their code that is responsible for the main functions of
the program. The second thing is the resources of each application: its
icons, images, labels, dialog boxes and other objects whose absence would
make it impossible to comfortably work in Windows aimed at visual interaction
with its users.
That is why any modern environment for quick development includes special
utilities which help software developers create and manage resource
description files containing these vital components of any application
for the Win32 platform.
Unfortunately, despite the fact that most utilities make developers' lives easier,
they often have serious drawbacks thus complicating effective work:
they are uncomfortable, have serious limitations and are developed
rather slowly obviously lagging behind the overall progress in the
field of information technology.
That is why each professional software developer often uses some special
utilities from third-party developers, for instance, Resource Builder ,
which is one of the best programs in its class.

Key Features of Resource Builder:
What's new in version 2.6?
- Working with RC and RES resource files
You can create and edit any resources in the comfortable visual editors of Resource Builder
and then save them to RC or RES files that can be used in third-party applications.
Moreover, Resource Builder allows you to select and load the resources you need from
resource files and create their new combinations. You can also select separate resources
and save them to a file. Resource Builder is the only visual resource editor that
allows to creating, editing and saving Unicode RC scripts.
- Importing resources from files of various formats
Resource Builder has a unique feature of importing resources from Win32 executables
(EXE, DLL ...) and from 32-bit and 16-bit binary resource files (RES, DCR).
Using Resource Builder you will be able to restore resources used in your
applications even if you lost their sources.
- Patching and updating resources in executable files
Resource Builder makes it possible to update, patch and modify resources directly in
executables, such as applications and dynamic-link libraries even without recompiling them.
- Advanced features in working with graphic resources
Resource Builder allows you to work with images in the JPEG format as easily as
with standard BMP images. Support for images with any size and colors count allows
using Resource Builder as a replacement for Borland Resource Workshop or Image Editor,
which unable to support "quality" images in projects. Moreover, the graphic editor
of the program allows you to process images with the help of various filters making
it no worse than serious graphic packages.
- WYSWIG Visual dialog editor
A few simple mouse actions, editing of couple values in the Properties column
and you get what you need! To make it more comfortable for developers,
the toolbar contains all common Windows controls: labels, buttons, checkboxes
and so on. To place them onto the form, a couple of moves with your mouse is
quite enough. Using Custom Control libraries allows dramatically extending your dialogs.
- Supporting the DFM format (forms in Delphi and C++ Builder)
You can view and edit forms created with Borland Delphi and C++Builder in the text form
and preview them in original view. You can preview real image of edited forms and even
more view them in "working" mode as application form. Resource Builder can also
work with resources stored in Delphi packages.

as well as link to compiled executables to add them Vista icons.
