Dear Madshi,

    When some Exe was compressed by Aspack..etc,
    if we use "madRes" to change it's main-icon, we will
    get a "Access violiation message..".Are there some
    problem with "compressed execution"software? :o



Best regards,
cch

Please try using the Resource Hacker. Can this freeware tool edit the resources successfully without negative side effects? If it can, then it's probably a bug in madRes. If Resource Hacker fails, too, then I'd say the compression somehow products an incorrect resource section.

Dear Madshi,
    Resource Hacker also can't edit the resources of compressed EXE. :confused:


Thanks.

Best regards,
cch.

UPX has an option (--compress-icons=0) that will make it work:

Code: Select all
upx --compress-icons=0 -9 <exe file>
