"$(SolutionDir)rsrcgen.exe" "$(ProjectDir)$(AssemblyName).info" "dir=$(ProjectDir)\" debug=$(UseDebugLibraries) platform=$(PlatformTarget)

You will need to edit the proper path to the rsrcgen.exe file above.


Rsrc Generator s a free software available under the zlib license.

Building the program

Rebuild of the source should be straightforward, Dev-C++ project is included. To refresh manifest and VERSIONINFO for the rsrcgen.exe itself, run:

rsrcgen.exe PATH\rsrcgen.info dir=PATH debug=false platform=x86


This tool is actually nothing much more than a very simple string replacing tool with predefined content. Written as very simplistic, for single purpose, does not even free allocated memory.
