Resource Editor: How To Delete A Resource
Resource Tuner lets you delete unwanted resources from executable files. However, "If in doubt don't touch " is a good rule of thumb.
Deleting A Resource Item
Select the item to be deleted (e.g. Icon) in the Resource Tree view. Press the Delete button on the tool bar or use the hotkey combination [Shift-Ctrl-D]. Items selected for deletion are indicated by the red x marker.
To restore deleted items, use the Undelete button on the toolbar or use the hotkey combination [Shift-Ctrl-Z].
Changes are made permanent only after you have saved them to the file.
Select 'File' -> 'Save File As ...' to save the changes you've just made to the target file. If warned that the image size has changed, click Yes to update the file size.
It is recommended to perform all file operations with copies of the originals and then only after you have moved the copies to a separate directory other than the parent or home directory of the executable.
Deleting Multiple Resources with Resource Tuner Console
If you need to delete existing resources, or add new ones for several hundred files, you are more than likely going to want some way to implement this with a batch file. Whenever large numbers of files have to be processed or to be accessible through batching, you need Resource Tuner Console.
