    Question Getting resources from another program.

    The script in "warkres.dll" would be:

    Code:
     int main() 
    {
      MessageBox( 0,
    					"Wark Resources",
    					"THIS IS A RESORCE PROGRAM!\nLeave allone, open with \"Wark.exe\".",
    				   MB_ICONWARNING );
      return 0;
    }
    Then I would have a lot of bmp and wav resources.

    And I want my "real" program get those resources from it.

    How can I, I have no clue.

    Help appreciated, August.

    Step 1) LoadLibrary
    Step 2) FindResource
    Step 3) LoadResource
    Step 4) LockResource

    Okay, I've got the following:
    Code:
    HINSTANCE hExecLib;
    hExecLib = LoadLibrary(TEXT("warkres.dll"));
    PlaySound("JMPSND", hExecLib, SND_ASYNC | SND_RESOURCE);
    And it works, but now how can I enum the resources in "warkres.dll"?
    Thanks, August.
