How to edit strings and messages in EXE files

Strings stored in StringTables and MessageTables are primarily used as text in message boxes, list boxes, combo boxes, tooltips, and commands displayed in the statusbar. Stingtable strings can also contain control characters and placeholders (e.g., %d, %s).

Steps to Edit Strings with Resource Tuner

1. Expand the String Table (or Message Table) folder within the Resource Tree view and select the specific string table resource you wish to edit.

2. Select the string entry from the table and make any desired changes in the edit box. You can also copy (Ctrl+C) or paste text from clipboard (Ctrl+V). A missing string or improperly altered placeholder string ('%s') can cause a modified program to crash at run time. So be careful.

Remember, any changes made can be restored before exiting Resource Tuner by using the 'Restore Resource Data' button.

3. Once you're done editing, select 'File' 'Save File' or use the [Ctrl+S] combination to save the modifications to the target file.

Changing Multiple Strings with Resource Tuner Console

When dealing with the need to update existing strings or add new ones for several hundred files, the most effective approach is to utilize a batch file. Whenever large numbers of files have to be processed or to be accessible through scripting / batching, you need Resource Tuner Console.
