Hi friends,

Here is my tiny example modifying the icon of an executable. The technique is based on using memory templates extracted from compiled resource files. To get the binary resource file (rsrc.bin), I used the res2bin tool.

1.Check the "msgbox.exe" file in the attachment. Look at the icon.
2.Now, run the "update.exe" file, you will notice that the icon of msgbox.exe is updated! :)

Another method of updating resources is to use a resource linker:
