Nifty program. There's a quick look at what this program can do in a youtube video I came across http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLmwZDmc0Ns (skip to about 9:15)

A must have in any toolbox.

But... is it me only, or latest versions (post 3.5) crash/shoot more errors when browsing program resources?

V3.6.0

I can't extract the Resource Hacker 3.6.0 setup file with 7-Zip - any ideas?

V3.6.0

dstrout 2012-06-28 21:02

Figured it out. I did a full install, took the files from the install folder and put them in a new folder, then created a file in that folder named reshacker.ini. With that file in place, Resource Hacker runs portably, writing settings to it. Thanks to Ennovy for mentioning the ini file and giving me the idea to try that. If anyone else has this problem, try that.
