Batch Processing All Executable Files in a Folder

This sample code provides a real-world example that demonstrates many of the features available in Resource Tuner Console. The code shows how to batch process the contents of a directory containing mixed EXEs and DLLs.

The script scans the specified Source directory for all available files. Then, for each file with the given file extension (EXE, DLL, SYS) it calls for the ProcessFile procedure to set the English-US language for all resources in each file and update the Version Information resource (StringFileInfo, FileVersion, and ProductVersion values). The processed files will be saved in the Destination folder.

Note: Ensure that there are no line breaks in the script code, as VBScript requires the entire command to be on one line.

To view the changes made to the test EXE and DLL files, you can open them using Resource Tuner GUI.


Upon installing Resource Tuner Console, you will find the Demo Scripts folder nested within the RTC installation directory. This folder contains 12 subdirectories, each featuring script examples and sample executable files.

All the sample scripts are ready to run. To execute a sample script, simply select one of the .BAT files located within the respective Demo folders. When executed, the script will apply changes to the test EXE file. The resulting modified file will be created in a directory named Release, which resides in the same directory as the script.
