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.) :)

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 :

Developer Angus Johnson obligingly provides a rich sampling of usage screenshots:

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?

On Windows XP this program completely clears out my recent documents list in the registry and the shortcuts folder.

This app is fits the bill when coding C/C++/Asm windows with Visual Studio Express.

Turning off Auto Check Update prevents it from going online.

Uses png with transparency on image files.

Doesn't recognize a ton of forms, making it not very useful.

Tries to go online when you start it.
