HTMLRes is a simple command line application that creates 32 bit binary resource files that contain HTML files suitable for displaying using Internet Explorer's res:// protocol. For details on how to use the protocol see author's article 'How to create and use HTML resource files' on

The application simply takes a list of HTML and related support files and embeds the files a RT_HTML section of a resource file. The resource file is created from scratch, overwriting any existing resource file with the same name.

HTMLRes is particularly useful for embedding HTML files in the executable of the program that displays information using TWebBrowser. The abilitiy to embed the required HTML and support files in the executable means that it is not necessary to distribute the HTML files separately. HTMLRes names the resource with the name of the file - something that makes porting standard HTML files to embedded resources very easy - and something that BRCC32 won't do.

v1.0 adds new -r command line switch that enables manifest files to reference files relative to manifest rather than directory HTMLRes executed from. Also updated sign on message.
