Hello...

I have an exe-file "C:\windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe" and i like to read the Bitmap "1". But if I try to open the Bitmap from HINSTANCE = LoadLibrary("C:\\windows\\system32\\ntoskrnl.exe")        with ResName = "1" and ResType = RT_BITMAP... an error name "Resource 1 doesnt exists" appears.

How can i read an exchange the Bitmap "1" in the exe file?

Thanks for advance!

resname is 1, and not "1", you must use MAKEINTRESOURCE macro to load it.
Something like:

LoadBitmap(hInst, MAKEINTRESOURCE(1));

You cannot exchange ist since ntoskernel.exe will most certainly be in use. Apart from that, any changes will be null and void since the SFP will revert them immediately.
