    How to modify *.exe files

    learn how to change *.exe files, in 5 easy steps:

    1) Don't try to modify a prog by editing his source in a dissasembler.Why?
    Cause that's for programmers and assembly experts only.

    try to view it in hex you'll only get tons of crap you don't understand.
    First off, you need Resource Hacker(last version). It's a resource editor-
    very easy to use, You can download it at http://www.users.on.net/johnson/resourcehacker/

    2) Unzip the archive, and run ResHacker.exe. You can check out the help file too

    3) You will see that the interface is simple and clean. Go to the menu FileOpen or press Ctrl+O to open a file. Browse your way to the file you would like to edit. You can edit *.exe, *.dll, *.ocx, *.scr and *.cpl files, but this tutorial is to teach you how to edit *.exe files, so open one.

    4) In the left side of the screen a list of sections will appear.
    The most common sections are
    -String table;
    -RCData;
    -Dialog;
    -Cursor group;
    -Bitmap;
    -WAV.
    *Icon: You can wiew and change the icon(s) of the program by double-clicking the icon section,chossing the icon, right-clicking on it an pressing "replace resource". After that you can choose the icon you want to replace the original with.
    *String table: a bunch of crap, useful sometimes, basic programming knowladge needed.
    *RCData: Here the real H@cking begins. Modify window titles, buttons, text, and lots more!
    *Dialog:Here you can modify the messages or dialogs that appear in a program. Don't forget to press "Compile" when you're done!
    *Cursor group: Change the mouse cursors used in the program just like you would change the icon.
    *Bitmap: View or change images in the programs easy!
    *WAV:Change the sounds in the prog. with your own.

    5) In the RCData,Dialog,Menu and String table sections you can do a lot of changes. You can modify or translate the text change links, change buttons, etc.

    TIP: To change a window title, search for something like: CAPTION "edit this".
    TIP: After all operations press the "Compile Script" button, and when you're done editing save, your work @ FileSave(Save as).
    TIP: When you save a file,the original file will be backed up by default and renamed to Name_original and the saved file will have the normal name of the changed prog.
    TIP: Sometimes you may get a message like: "This program has a non-standard resource layout... it has probably been compressed with an .EXE compressor." That means that Resource Hacker can't modify it because of it's structure.

    This is Cr@cking! Better not crack copyright protected software. Why don't you think of developing your own software from scratch?
