General Questions

What is the difference between the demo version and the full version?

Your evaluation copy of RTC is a full-featured release. This means that the same capabilities available in the registered software are present in the non-registered software. This allows you to try out all the features in Resource Tuner Console to confirm that they work to your satisfaction.

However, Resource Tuner Console in trial mode allows for processing only two files at a time. Resource Tuner Console Demo watermarks the resulting executables with a custom string inserted into the Version Info resource, such as "Made with an unregistered copy. Register to remove this message".

How can I make sure I have the Windows Scripting Host engine enabled on my machine?

Windows Script Host is part of the standard OS installation and so is available on any Windows machine. It's easy to test — start Notepad, type the following:


 WScript.Echo "Hello world!"

Save it as test.vbs — with a .vbs extension instead of the default .txt extension. Navigate to the file you just saved, and double-click it. Windows Script Host invokes the VBScript engine and runs your script. In the example, a message box is displayed with the message "Hello world!" and an 'OK' button.

Does Resource Tuner Console support other scripting languages?

Resource Tuner Console reads and executes scripts using the Windows Script Host engine. Any active script language installed and supported by Windows Script Host can be theoretically used for scripts. You have the option to specify the scripting language in the script body.

Resource Tuner Console uses VBScript as its default scripting language. VBScript and JavaScript are included as components with Edge or Internet Explorer, which should be installed already on your computer. Whether you're using Perl, Python, Rexx, TCL, or Lua as the scripting language, ensure that the corresponding modules are already installed on the system. For greater detail, download Resource Tuner Console and consult the extensive Help system that has been provided with RTC.

What is the difference between the Console and GUI versions?

Resource Tuner Console is a command-line tool. It's a scriptable program runnable from the console, and is intended to be used from scripts. Resource Tuner GUI is a visual resource viewer and editor. See also:  Which Program is Best For You?

Does Resource Tuner Console handle .NET resources in managed assemblies?

No. At the moment, RTC works with unmanaged 32- and 64-bit PE files only.

I don't see any help about modifying Menu and Dialog strings. Is this possible and how?

No, it is impossible at the moment due to the visual nature of these GUI elements. RTC does not support editing menus and dialogs. See:   Functionality currently not supported

How do I change the main application icon in my EXE file with the batch file "change all icons"?

See:  The Complete Illustrated Guide To Using Scripts

Sample scripts illustrated the main features can be found within the Resource Tuner Console package.

Once installed Resorce Tuner Console, you will find the Sample Script Library in the DEMO directory. Within this "Demo" folder, there are 12 subdirectories containing sample scripts and sample executable files.

All sample scripts are ready to run. Select one of the .BAT files located under the "Demo" folder to execute the script. Resulting files will be created in the directory named "Release" under the directory containing the script.
