Tool to update poide resource editor defaults
« on: November 11, 2016, 09:34:04 AM »
To have better default manifest for Windows 10,  we need this tool.

Usage:
 backup original poide.exe to safe place
 copy poide.exe to temporary folder and run this tool in same folder.
 copy modified poide.exe to PellesC bin folder
 or with different name as poidex.exe

EDIT: 2016-12-15 POCFixTemplate.zip now with file open dialog.

Hi TimoVJL:

Does this utility work with poide64.exe?

When I ran it on a poide64.exe that I had renamed poide.exe, the MessageBox said "Resource updated" but there was the word "error" in the titlebar of the MessageBox. When I looked at the manifest section of poide.exe I could not see any change.

It should work. MessageBox show always "Error" as it just don't have own title.
It don't change poide manifest, only resource default template in poide RCDATA.

Hi TimoVJL:

Thank you for your explanation.

I have retried the fix and yes, it does work on the Poide64.exe. The RCDATA TEMPLATE, as expected, is modified.
