Resource Tuner: User Testimonials
MSDN Magazine, Feb 2004: Tune Up 32-bit Windows Executables
Resource Tuner offers a thorough look at all of the resources (bitmaps, icons, strings, and so on) in the file, and allows you to make modifications without having to recompile the source code.
What People Are Saying
From the minute I loaded it on to my machine I was able to change all the info I wanted... no hours of reading manuals or help menus, just a little input and a click of the Apply button... I will most definately recommend your software to friends and colleagues.
Resource Tuner is the best resource viewer that has ever existed! As a Windows software skinning and customization artist, i can edit all theme/skin binaries without any trouble. Yes, there's a freeware with nearly same function, but i must confess i much prefer this stuff! Thanx!
I could possibly find freeware to do this task, but I wouldn't in general trust freeware for business purposes.

The free products that I tried would not open the resources I was interested in. Plus, the UI is super easy to use. No muss, no fuss, no vis studio to crash my box. Keep up the good work.
I tried using mt.exe [from MS Visual Studio] to manifest my files. It worked on some but not on others. It seems your method of parsing the .EXE is more robust than the one that mt.exe uses.
Great flexibility in handling various types of binaries, Windows resource editing capabilities (DFM-Files!)
The reason I chose Resource Tuner was simply that it works - I had previously been using Borland's Resource Workshop for my work, which is (non-commercial) localization, but I had been having difficulty using it with Far Eastern locales. The evaluation version of Resource Tuner, on the other hand, worked perfectly, and I was startled at how cheap it was to register (I would normally expect to pay at least twice as much for a program of this quality).
I found Resource Tuner on Download.com and it was the only software like it I've tried. It was so easy to use that I decided to go for it: the easy and intuitive UI that allows for editing .dll files.
I searched google.com for a Resource Viewer and you were right in the top of the list. I played with your trial version for only a few minutes and I was hooked! It's even more than I was looking for and I'm happy to add it to my arsenal of tools. I hope you keep on doing active development for the tool!
My company develops games using Macromedia Director. If you've never tried to publish a professional looking executable with Director then you haven't experienced true pain. <smile> Quick and easy access to all the resources which are normally inaccessible really allows us to make a more complete app.
I registered the program because I saw great potential for using it to edit the GUI of programs I have on my system. What really made me like it was when I was able to remove the ads from ICQ by editing the icqcore.dll file. I also see potential for editing system bootscreens and other things. This was the only program that offered the ease of use and functionality I needed.
I'm using your product to edit Macromedia Directors .skl file changing out the icons with those used in an interactive CD we are developing for an Independent School District. I choose your program because upon evaluation it performs exactly as I needed with no effort.
