Solid alternative to Resource Hacker.

about Resource Tuner and Resource Hacker FX, Resource Hacker Oct 2014

I had problems with Resource Hacker, therefore I've tried Resource Tuner.

Resource Tuner isn't free, but you can use TRIAL version to fulfill your needs.

Personally, I was unable to change Google Chrome icons using Process Hacker, because after changing icons, Google Chrome simply wouldn't start.

Resource Tuner allowed me to change Google Chrome icons successfully in a very convenient way.

Resource Tuner even has a tutorial on how to change icons:

In order to create various sizes of icons, I've used trial version of IcoFX.
