Resource .NET Description
Resource .NET is a tiny software application that gives you the possibility to update embedded graphic resources in a .NET assembly, as well as to create new ones from scratch. It doesn’t need to be installed.
No setup required, aside from .NET Framework
Provided that you already have .NET Framework installed on your PC, you can save Resource .NET’s files anywhere on the disk and just click the executable to launch the app. Otherwise, you can save it to a pen drive or other removable storage unit, in order to run it on any computer with minimum effort. Unlike most installers, this tool doesn’t modify Windows registry settings.
Edit images and text strings
Resource .NET is wrapped in a classical-looking and intuitive interface, represented by a regular window with a clear-cut structure, where you can indicate the resource type, name and data, as well as add as many resources as you want.
Images can be opened from files with the .bmp, .gif, .ico, .jpg, .tif, .emf or .wmf format, while text can be translated into another language. Photos from resource files can be extracted too.
Once the project is saved, you can edit data, such as bitmap properties regarding the horizontal and vertical resolution, width and height, pixel and raw format, along with tag. The image can be replaced with another anytime. Resource .NET puts a search function at your disposal for locating strings, together with the possibility to undo and redo your actions.
Evaluation and conclusion
The tool offers support for multiple instances. It had a good response time and minimal impact on computer performance during our tests, thanks to the fact that it needed low CPU and RAM to work properly. We haven’t come across any stability issues, since it didn’t hang, crash or prompt error messages.
Although Resource .NET is not particularly feature-rich, it delivers a straightforward and effective method to creating and editing resource files, offering support for images and strings.
