PROGRAM Description Contributor
It works great. Self-Extracting EXE Creator is used for creating self-extracting EXE files. Self-extracting file contains other files which are extracted from it when the file is run. The files self-extracting EXE contains are compressed using Lempel-Ziv algorithm, whose compression ratio is about 35%. SFX EXE Creator compresses all files using Lempel-Ziv algorithm and adds 17kB of executable code to compressed files. Warning: When you name a new SFX file, the name which you enter shouldn't be the same as the name of the file which will execute after extracting the archive, otherwise DO self-extracting archive will start itself.

This utility writes an .RC version info file that can be included in your .RES file. Tom Record(03/27/99)
VB-Res is a resource compiler , a limited res compiler, but better than nothing! It creates RES files for use with your projects. It is written in VB and can create both 16 and 32-bit RES files from either the 16 or 32-bit version of VB-Res. It doesn't support Dialog, Menu, or Accelerator resources but it does support Bitmap, Icon, Cursor, StringTable, and custom resources. VB-Res will require all the runtimes that any VB EXE requires.

The EXEVIEW sample uses the Old and New Header formats as documented in the Microsoft MS-DOS Encyclopedia. EXEVIEW loads these headers and the associated tables that are pointed at by these headers. The include the Entry Table, the Segment Table, the Resource Table, the Resident and Non-Resident name tables as well as the Imported Name tables. In addition to loading these tables, EXEVIEW will also load the resources that can be found in the resource table. If the resource can be displayed graphically (Icons, cursors, bitmaps, menus, etc...) then it is. For string tables and directories (Icon, cursor, font, etc...) the resources are listed in a text format. For more information on the file formats and resource formats see the MS-DOS Encyclopedia, The September 1991 Microsoft Systems Journal or the Microsoft Open Tools documentation.
