Update DateTime Stamp

Use the UpdateDateTimeStamp procedure for changing the TimeDate Stamp and setting every field in the PE file header, export and resource sections to the adjusted TimeDate Stamp.

Strip Empty Resource Section

Use the StripEmptyResSection property to enable/disable deletion of the empty resource section when saving the file.

UPX Unpacker

When you process a file with RTC, the UPX Unpacker plug-in detects whether this file is packed with UPX, and then unpacks it automatically. All versions of UPX are supported, from the obsolete early versions (prior to 0.80) up to the latest version 4.0.
