    You would typically have this information stored in a database. The resource section of the EXE or DLL is for exactly what it says: resources (icons, bitmaps, cursors, etc.) While you can store user entered information in the resource file I would not recommend this since that is not what the resource file is to be used for.

    You could stream the info out to a file, XML file, binary file, etc. as well.
