VC++?

Post by suha » Thu Aug 25, 2005 1:23 pm

I could not load .rc & .rc2 (VC++) resource files into restorator.

Doesn't restorator support VC++ resources?

Restorator does not open .rc files as such. It has limited support for .rc files for inidividual resources: you can save any resource as .rc file, and some resources can be replaced with a .rc file.

Restorator mainly works with executable PE files (e.g. .exe, .dll) and .res files. In Visual Studio you can compile your .rc resource to a .res file and open that one in Restorator.

Hi Florian,

Does Restoratar supports such exotic languages as Japanese? In a company I am working in we use Restorator as command line tool to replace some bitmaps and icons in the resource DLL during building an installations for different customers. But we also need to make some strings postprocessing for a translated to Japanese resource DLL. So, we have an idea to decompile DLL back to rc file and perform some search and replace for the text and compile it back to the DLL. Is it possible to do via Restorator? I see the feature of extracting resources to the RC file, but it seems it does not support Japanese :( I see ????????????? symbols for a Japanese text.. Am I right? What about to add a support for it in the next release?

Since version 2006, Restorator has better support for RC files, see http://www.bome.com/Restorator/help/hel ... c350126142 .

Restorator 2007 will have more command line parameters for replacing specific resources.

Regarding Japanese: the easiest would be to use Unicode text files. Or, to provide search&replace directly from the command line in Restorator. I'll see what I can do.
