If you're having problems with Resource Hacker, try PE Explorer and Resource Tuner by Heaventools Software.

PE Explorer and Resource Tuner aren't free, but you can use TRIAL versions 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.

By the way, Resource Hacker is discontinued and the last version of Resource Hacker v3.6.0.92 was released in 2011-09-16, contrary to Resource Tuner v2.01 which was released in 2014-10-01.


PE Explorer is a easy disassembling tool and code viewer for beginners and lay people interested in reverse engineering, but it doesn't support x64 programs. For those interested in that specific feature, there's a lot of free alternative 32 and 64 bits disassembling tools.

Latest Version 5.1.7

Some names, leads, URLs would be even more helpful.

And at $120 usd it is beyond my "wallet"

Illustrated help/instructions on Resource Hacker - Home page are v.very helpful.
I have changed application icons, to make them more obvious in "TaskBar"

There are 2 editions of offline installer EXE and ZIP versions (by the developer)
And one portable (PAF) version (courtesy of PortableApps.com)
