I was checking out the Member specials and came across very good discounts on Resource Tuner and Resource Builder. I know these apps can rip/replace/edit resources from EXE's, DLL's, etc., but are these apps really necessary when Visual Studio already includes a resource editor ?
Also, which of these apps is better and why ?
From what I can see, Resource Builder comes with an icon editor and support Unicode, whereas you need to purchase a separate icon editor (ie. AWIcons Pro) with Resource Tuner and I'm not sure it supports Unicode. Is this correct, and is there a discount available for AWIcons Pro ?
FYI, I'm a software developer who develops in C/C++.
Is it worth me purchasing either of these apps ?
