In Visual Basic (i use v6) go to Add-Ins
menu, add-in manager.
hilight the resource editor in the list bos, check the "loaded" tickbox, add the res file to your project, and double click to open it in the resource editor

What do you want to do? You don't open the file you use the LoadResData, LoadResPicture and the LoadResString functions to load things from the resource file. They are covered in the help file.

*.Res files contain resource data. If you didn't make the resource file, you can use WinRes and possibly WinRC to open and view its contents.

To load the data, you use the LoadResPicture, LoadResString or LoadResData functions.

Optionally, you may compile the resource file into a dll and retreive and use the data using WinAPI function calls, such as:
LoadLibrary, FindResource, FreeLibrary, LockResource, LoadBitmap, etc..

If you want to edit any *.res file, you first need to know what the file contains. Use WinRes - available for download over the net - to look at the contents of the file. It allows you to delete resources from the file or add new ones.

You can create use your favourite programs to create images, sound files, text strings or other resources and add them to the file...
....or you can simply delete the resources that you do not intend to use.

(If you use VB5, which, doesn't come with a resource editor, you'll have to download one. WinRes and WinRC are easy to use)
