PE File Resource Viewer and Editor

Resource Types Supported by PE Explorer

Resources can contain data in a number of forms, including strings, images, dialogs, and persisted objects. In general, a Windows application's resources are separated from the program code, letting you make significant changes to the interface without recompiling your entire application.

Not all of those resources support direct editing, but for most you can replace and edit them with Resource Editor. PE Explorer recognizes the following resource types:

AVI animated image *.avi
