Resource Hacker 3.6


The interface of Resource Hacker 3.6 is nothing special but it can't be any other way given the simplicity of the program. This tool runs in a regular Windows program window that offers you a File-Help list of drop-down menus and two major window areas. The one to the left is the smaller one – this is the place where you see a tree-like structure of folders with each one of them containing various information about the file that you are editing. The area to the right is larger and this is the place where the folder and file content gets displayed. Depending on the file content you will either see a small program icon or programming text that is hidden somewhere in your regular Windows file, that it turns out, hides quite a large number of secrets.

Basic Operations

Resource Hacker 3.6 cannot open any file there is – in fact the program works with a limited number of file formats that includes EXE, DLL, RC and RES files so make sure you have at least one of these to be able to use this tool. Fortunately Windows is rich in such files so pick one of these and drag it inside the program window or just use the Open menu. When you do this the program will open the file and you will see its structure to the left and its content to the right.


If you like to play with your PC and edit crucial files to just see what happens or you are a serious programmer then you might find Resource Hacker 3.6 rather useful. This is an application that opens and presents executable files and DLL libraries and allows you to edit them in a simple and fast way. Just don't make mistakes because they may render your PC unusable.
