Resource Hacker Review

Sven Sorensen

Freeware utility to modify 32-bit and 64-bit Windows resources

A review of Resource Hacker by

Resouce Hacker is something which has long been searched for and thankfully, Angus Johnson decided to developer exactly that and release it as a freeware application for anybody to download.

In all, Resource Hacker is a small and robust utility which is able to grab, edit and even delete the resources used in Windows EXE files, DLL Libraries and resource files (.RES). It works with virtually every version of Windows from Windows 95 right up to Windows 7 and the upcoming Windows 8 release.

In-so-far as what you can access with Resource Hacker, you can view and edit the icons, bitmaps, cursor, AVI resources in 32-bit and 64-bit executable files. As for viewing resources, Resource Hacker can give you insight into the menus, dialogs, stringtables, forms and version info of executable files.

Resource Hacker also allows users to extract and convert image files and save them as bitmaps, jpegs, icons and more.

This program also has some other goodies in store for anybody looking to snoop around and extract data from resources.

Resource Hacker is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from computer utilities without restrictions. Resource Hacker 3.6.0 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).

Compatibility with this executable analyzer software may vary, but will generally run fine under Microsoft Windows 8, 8.1, 7, Vista and XP on either a 32-bit or 64-bit setup. A separate x64 version may be available from Angus Johnson.
