Often we wish to use some of the images, cursors or the AVI movies from an installed application. But as these applications happen to be .exe or .dll or .ocx files, we end up nowhere. This post will guide you to an interesting utility called ResourcesExtract.
ResourcesExtract is a small utility that scans dll/ocx/exe files and extract all resources (bitmaps, icons, cursors, AVI movies, HTML files, and more…) stored in them into the folder that you specify.You can use ResourcesExtract in user interface mode, or alternatively, you can run ResourcesExtract in command-line mode without displaying any user interface. ResourcesExtract doesn’t require any installation process or additional DLL files. In order to start using it, simply run the executable file.
Follow the step by step process below to extract images and other resources from any application
2.) Double click on the exe to launch the ResourcesExtract application.
3.) In the FileName/ Wildcard input box, enter the path for the application from which you wish to extract the resources.
4.) In the input box named Destination Folder specify the folder where you wish to save these resources.
5.) Select the resources ( Icons, Bitmaps, AVIs etc…) you wish to extract from the application.
6.) Press Start to begin the process. Once the process is completed, check for the resources in your destination folder.
