Preparing Resources

Resource preparation for a MUI application supports both Win32 PE and non-Win32 PE models. Win32 PE resources are provided in PE-based files, such as .dll, .exe, or .sys files. Non-Win32 PE resources are furnished in a customized module of your choosing.


It is highly recommended for you to use Win32 PE resources for Win32 MUI applications, as these resources are completely supported by the MUI resource technology. Non-Win32 PE resource files can be located by calling the GetFileMUIPath function as described in Locating Non-Win32 PE Resources, but the application must provide its own functionality to find and load the required resources.
