Need help with extracting resources from .exes

FlackFlack Member Posts: 88

I have a MFC dialog app and I want to be able to extract icons from other .exes and use them in my program.

My plan was this:
1. Use LoadLibrary to load the target .exe
2. Use FindResource and LoadResource to locate and load the dialog box resource.
3. Use LockResource function to retrieve a pointer to resource data
4. Use UpdateResource to update my apps resources

However, I have a problem. FindResource requires requires the name of the resource (or integer id) that I am looking for, but I do not know it.

How can I find out the id(s) of an .exes icon(s)?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
