I don't think you really want to use a .RES file for this.  . RES file is a compiled resource object file.  Sort of like an .OBJ is a compiled code object file.  Both of these files are intermediate steps to producting a final executble file.  (i.e. these files are not "finished" yet.)

When the final program (and EXE or DLL, for example) is created the information in the .RES file will be included in the final program.  You can then use LoadLibrary() to load the program (EXE or DLL) and FindResource() to find the resources and LoadResource() to actually load the resources.   You can use these functios (and others) on the final EXE or DLL, but not on the .RES file.

Is there a reason you wanted to use the .RES file?  or was that a mistake?

===================================
You'd compile and link resource files and they will emerge into .exe.Then you can use Findxxx,loadxxx,lockxxx to use them...

->FindResource() to find the resources and LoadResource() to actually load the resources.  
=======================
You'd call LockResource() afterwards...
