ResEdit - Resource Editor

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

ResEdit - Resource Editor

#1 Post by Ruby » Tue Oct 06, 2009 1:03 pm

This is a pretty cool Free Resource Editor for Windows programs.

Image

Category: Programming - Resource Tools

Synopsis: ResEdit is a free Resource Editor for Win32 programs. You can use it if you want to use dialogs, icon, version information or other types of resources. Output files can be compiled by any Win32 compiler, like MinGW and Microsoft Visual C++.

Writes settings to: Application folder

How to extract: Download the current version of ResEdit-"BUILD".7z to a folder of your choice. Launch the program by double-clicking on ResEdit.exe

Unicode support: Yes (there are two versions hence the "BUILD" quote in the filename)

License: Freeware

Stealth: ? (tested with regshot, nothing but windows related shell and mru stuff)

Homepage: http://www.resedit.net/
Screenshots: http://www.resedit.net/screenshots.htm
Help Menu: http://www.resedit.net/doc/index.html

The program does automatic check for updates by default, but can be changed in the Preferences.

Okay so I tested with Sandboxie and RegFromApp on Windows 7.

So Sandboxie didn't detect and files being added to %APPDATA% but RegFromApp did detect the following keys being added:

Code: Select all

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Tracing\ResEdit_RASMANCS]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Tracing\ResEdit_RASAPI32]
So from looking at this it would appear not to be stealth, perhaps this can be changed via the settings, but I didn't find any option. Could this be the automatic update?

Those keys have to do with Remote Access Service, so yeah, probably the update feature.

I ran RegFromApp as an admin on Vista, started ResEdit and didn't get those entries.

Did Sanboxie also write those keys in the registry hive it creates at runtime?

It created a blank Reg folder.
I just did the same test on Windows XP SP3 and couldn't find these RegKeys, so maybe its a Windows 7 addition with the Tracing RegKey!

Are you the Developer of this App?

No, it showed up on one of my rss feeds, freewarefiles I think, so I gave it a try (seeing how my beloved reshacker is a bit outdated) and really liked it.
The first try I did was to open mplayerc (Media Player Classic Homecinema) scroll down to Menu>128 double-click, click View, move cursor to Language press delete on keyboard. Simple, I hate references to language files that don't exist.

If I remember correctly (I haven't re-installed yet) Sandboxie creates a hive in the registry, if you open regedit you should see everything associated with the sandbox (read/write of the program).

Did you disable the Auto check updates?

ResEdit might prove useful (amongst other things) for some quick editing portably (SciTE, MinGW) CodeBlocks, PellesC.

The portable releases seems to have gone. You should not run the installer; it includes adware - Wajam ads and recommendations.

Just uniextract the installer; the files you need are in the $INSTDIR folder. Edit ResEdit.xml with a notepad program, change
<autoCheckUpdate value="true" /> to <autoCheckUpdate value="false" to disable the autocheck for updates.

Why are you asking? Did you run the installer?

Then you should see what the installer does and what is left behind after the process is completed. It only contains adware.
