editor's review





DLL files and executables are packed with a wide array of data values and various documents, all of which work together to connect them to the rest of the program. Hence, from images, icons and cursors, all the way to running parameters and runtime variables, all of them are packed into these libraries.

Extract DLL, EXE and OCX files to your computer

Redwood - Resource Extractor is a software utility designed to offer you a glimpse inside these files, by allowing you to view and extract the items contained into them to your computer. Thanks to this, images, icons and various binary data can be easily viewed outside the actual library, as well as used in other purposes.

Among the supported formats, the application can recognize and open EXE, DLL, OCX and CPL files, all of which can be previewed and extracted with ease. In addition, the contained items are arranged in tree-form, in order to help you better visualize them and quickly find what you are looking for. They are also grouped by language and document type.

Preview the files before extracting them

In case you are not certain about the specifics of the file you are searching for, the application allows you to preview it before beginning the extraction process, in order to see whether it contains the information you want or not. As you can image, this feature is especially useful when it comes to images and icons, which can be easily previewed at their full size.

As far as the regular data is concerned, it is displayed in text mode using hexadecimal values, as well as regular, non-formatted text. These can be extracted under the BIN format, although you can also manually enter the desired extension, given you are experienced enough to know how to handle the resulting file format.

In conclusion

Redwood - Resource Extractor opens the way to a wide array of possibilities, especially for those of you who do not have too much experience when it comes to computers. Hence, you can use it to easily access otherwise inaccessible libraries, as well as to retrieve the data you need from a multitude of supported formats.
