exe_update - Modify windows executable files
exe_update [ --gui | --console ] [ --icon iconfile ] [ --manifest manifestfile ] [ --info key=value;... ] exefile
This program rewrites PE headers in a Windows executable file. It can change whether the executable runs with a console window, as well as setting the icons, manifest and version information associated with it. In general, a PE file must have an existing resource section or you cannot add icons, manifests or version info. However, on Win32 platforms a new resource section will be created if none exists.
Options are available in a short form and a long form. For example, the three lines below are all equivalent: % exe_update -i new.ico input.exe % exe_update --icon new.ico input.exe % exe_update --icon=new.ico input.exe -c, --console Set the executable to always display a console window. -g, --gui Set the executable so it does not have a console window. -i, --icon=FILE Specify an icon file (in .ico, .exe or .dll format) for the executable. -m, --manifest=FILE Specify a manifest file in .xml format for the executable. -N, --info=KEY=VAL Attach version information for the executable. The name/value pair is joined by "=". You may specify "-N" multiple times, or use ";" to link several pairs. These special "KEY" names are recognized: Comments CompanyName FileDescription FileVersion InternalName LegalCopyright LegalTrademarks OriginalFilename ProductName ProductVersion -A, --manifestargs=KEY=VAL As an alternative to specifying a manifest file, specify manifest attributes. The name/value pair is joined by "=". You may specify "-A" multiple times, or use ";" to link several pairs. This option may be preferable to using a manifest file as these attributes will be combined with any existing manifest that may be in the executable. These special "KEY" names are recognized: ExecutionLevel UIAccess ExecName Description CommonControls Version The CommonControls key is a simple boolean value to indicate that the Common Controls Version 22.214.171.124 dependency should be added to the manifest. e.g --manifestargs="ExecutionLevel=requireAdministrator;ExecName=My.App;CommonControls=1" --manifestargs="Version=126.96.36.19995;UIAccess=false"
