RCData corrupted

Post by NoNameNeeded » Thu Nov 02, 2006 4:43 pm

When editing RCData in Restorator it obviously becomes corrupt because when you try to open the modified program afterwards it won't open.

Making the same modifications with Reshacker doesn't screw up the file so it's obviously a problem related to Restorator.

Hi,

that's interesting. Usually, editing RCData in Restorator is possible and does not corrupt anything.

The only known problem related to RCData resources is for very old Delphi/C++Builder forms: for better compatibility with asian characters, Restorator uses Unicode, which is not understood by old programs. Restorator 2007 will have fixed this problem.

Nonetheless, I'll contact you so that you can send me a file so that this problem will be fixed in future versions of Restorator.

Regards,
Florian
