What other kind of maladies do you cure? Or only software ones?

All MiTeC software that I use, writes to registry.
MiTeC HexEdit 6.1.0
MiTeC Icon Explorer 4.2.0
MiTeC Mail Viewer 2.3.0
MiTeC Network Scanner 4.0

Therefore Ive used JauntePE060Nightly to make it true stealth.

Maybe I'm just dense, but I use resource editors frequently, yet could never get the hang of ResEdit. Can anyone suggest some kind of straightforward tutorial?

__philippe on 2017-04-07 16:34

@Midas,

My advice: stay well clear of this ResEdit devilish contraption.
The bloody thing decided to keep crashing on my XP, of late, BSOD included...:-(

Use old faithful ResourceHacker instead :

Thanks __philippe. As I never did get the hang of ResEdit, ResourceHacker is still my number one go to hacking tool. (Has been like forever.) :)
