Exepack.NET uses ResourceLib to transfer icons and version resources from the source file into compressed executable. ResourceLib seems to be the only free .NET library for manipulating win32 (unmanaged) resources.

I am using ResourceLib as part of an in-house obfuscation program. After obfuscating a .Net assembly DLL I rename it to an name involving a random number, and use ResourceLib to remove or make innocuous some of the RT_VERSION strings. For example, the OriginalFilename string is removed (changed to a single blank).

Thanks for making this available.

I used parts of the code in a small utility I wrote, InsertIcons.exe, which lets you add multiple icons to .NET apps in an easy way. The program is MIT licensed like ResourceLib and can be found at

Thanks for ResourceLib, it really is a great library!
