Resource Hacker (also known as ResHacker or ResHack) is a free resource extraction utility and resource compiler for Windows developed by Angus Johnson. It can be used to add, modify or replace most resources within Windows binaries including strings, images, dialogs, menus, VersionInfo and Manifest resources. It can also create resource files (*.res) from scratch and the latest release (May 2, 2015) provides a number of text templates to facilitate this.
The utility is widely used.
In 2011 the author stated that he will neither release, nor sell the source code. Also, in 2002 the author stated that he had "no plans to continue development". However since then he has released three more updates with the latest version (ver 4.0) being released on May 2, 2015.
