enables you to customize your favorite programs by modifying the executable file (EXE, DLL, SYS, MSSTYLES, SCR and more) resources. Resource Tuner
makes it a snap to replace them with other images, texts and sounds more to your liking. Now supports large Vista icons. Extract images, edit them, and place them back. Or extract images from one application and put them into another. Have fun personalizing any application to your own unique taste. With Resource Tuner
you can view, extract, edit, modify, translate, or repair the resources contained within 32 bit Windows executable files with the click of a button. Resource Tuner
offers a thorough look at all of the resources (bitmaps, jpeg, png, xml, icons, strings, etc) in the file, and allows you to make modifications without needing to recompile the source code. It also allows you to edit the properties of any controls on Delphi forms within the PE file. Because Resource Tuner
has itself been written using Delphi, there`s a very strong emphasis on peeking inside Delphi applications and packages. Each element of the user interface - dialog boxes, menus, icons, pictures, toolbars, string tables and more are right at your fingertips. Support is provided for nearly every type of resources imaginable. Using XP Visual Style Manifest Wizard, you can now incorporate Windows XP Visual Style into your application. The wizard inserts an XML application manifest into the resource section of the executable, allowing your legacy application to take advantage of the slick new look for common controls featured in Windows XP.
