Updateresource API

P: n/a
Hi,
I'm trying to change some of resources within a compiled exe with the
updaterecource API in Visual Basic. But I just can't figure out how I
should do it. Searching the internet didn't help me either.
I hope that some one can provide me some code to help me.

To make it a bit more clear (I hope):
What I'm trying to do is editing some string tables within an exe using
the updateresource API. Resource editing using programs like reshack
isn't difficult but I would like to do the same but than with my own
patch and without using programs like reshack.

Thanks in advance,

Hades

Hades - it would be helpful if you posted your declaration of this API
and some sample code that uses this declaration....

The problem is that I can't find any sample code in vb on the internet.
I hoped that someone here could provide me with some sample code.
I forgot to add this link to the MSDN information http://tinyurl.com/r89ow.

A code example (not vb) can be found here: http://tinyurl.com/lrj3u

Thanks for your response,
