The need occasionally arises to modify binary resources without re-compilation. Say you want to change the manifest-dependencies of a dll you don’t have the source to. Or you wish to bump up the version of an executable without actually working on it, exactly as, ahem, a good friend of mine sometimes does.
A quick search will get you tons of free and commercial dedicated tools for the task. I accidentally learnt that you already have such a tool. It’s called Visual Studio.
Just 0pen your binary (exe, dll, ocx etc.) as a regular file from the menu (you can’t drag-n-drop it in). All the file resources are there on the screen, for you to abuse.
