I could possibly find freeware to do this task, but I wouldn't in general trust freeware for business purposes.

The reason I chose Resource Tuner was sim- ply that it works — I had previously been using Resource Workshop for my work, which is (non-commercial) localisation, but I had been having difficulty using it with Far Eastern locales. The evaluation version of Resource Tuner, on the other hand, worked perfectly, and I was start- led at how cheap it was to register (I would normally expect to pay at least twice as much for a program of this quality).

Resource Tuner ScreenshotsWindows executable files (EXE, DLL, ActiveX controls) can have all sorts of resources buried within them. Resource Tuner enables you to get at them to modify, save or delete them. Resources include the applications graphics, icons, cursors, dialog boxes and text. You can view resources, even playing sound and video files. You can have a lot of fun with this, especially when you start experimenting with Windows files.

Advanced Features

  • Resource optimizing, error checking and repairing automatically performed when opening a file.
  • Application Manifest Wizard inserts the manifest resource in existing applications — an easy way for legacy applications take advantage of the new look for common control styles on Windows.
  • Automatic UPX unpacking. Now you can open files compressed with UPX even without knowing that: your file will be unpacked automatically!
  • Expandable! Support for custom plug-ins to perform any startup processing.
  • Saving multiple resources at once. No more manual repetitive tasks!
  • You can navigate easily through the Delphi forms, RCData, and objects, and view their contents (Image Lists, Strings List, Glyphs, Bitmaps). There's a very strong emphasis on peeking inside Delphi applications and packages.

Resource editorResource Tuner offers a thorough look at all of the resources (bitmaps, jpeg, icons, strings, dialogs, PNG, PNG compressed Windows icons, XML, Image Lists, Type Library, etc) in the compiled executable file, and allows you to make modifications without needing to recompile the source code. You can view and extract images, icons, sounds, animations — all you have found in your application — on your hard disk. That makes Resource Tuner a perfect resource grabber.
