Resource Hacker is an application that provides basically the easiest method to get past the .EXE or .DLL extension in order to see the resources inside a certain file, providing you even more than that.

Resource Hacker has a very simple and clean interface and although it's not exactly the kind of application that should be used by beginners, it does all things a lot easier.

With a classy look that reminds us of older Windows versions, this app provides all the tools you need when opening executables or DLL files through a single click.

Thus you can save resources as a binary file or with a .RES extensions, you can replace icons, cursors and bitmaps, change texts and add new resources in a second.

Right clicking on a file components opens a new options menu, giving you the power to save, replace, rename or delete resources, but also to change languages on the go.

Resource Hacker is compatible with Win32 executable files (.EXE, .DLL, .CPL, .OCX) but also with Win32 resource files (.RES).

As for computer resources, your machine won't even notice that Resource Hacker is actually running and the whole thing goes very smoothly, even when editing files. The footprint on computer resources is minimal, so older machines will definitely be able to run it without any hassle.

What we liked the most was surely the interface that makes such a complex job accessible to all types of users. Just remember to make a backup before doing something risky, it's always better to stay on the safe side.
