    Win32 Resource Script Generator

    I use Dev-c++ 5 - and it lacks a Resource Script creater. I know Borland and MSVC has one, but DC5 doesn't. Is there a program that will make dialogs and menu resource scripts? If not freeware, one ~$30 or so?

    If there isn't a recent resouce script generator, is there a good refrence on resource scripts for dialogs and menus? I've yet to find one. Thank you!

    I looked around there - they have resource compilers - and two resource editors - both of which are poor. Is there a commercial resource editor?

    What I did was take the resource editor from lcc win32. Just grab the dll and the exe. You can delete the rest. You might wanna keep the icon creator as well though.

    The LCC resourece creater is so screwed up. It makes no sense, it dates back to 1994 or so. I'm thinking about getting MSVC7 just for the resource editor. I hear Borland has a nice one also. I can't make heads or tails out of lcc's.

    Well sir, then you are an idiot. The only things you have to change are nestings (I think, don't quote me on it as I haven't used it in a while).
