What is RES file?

A .RES file format is a resource file supported by the Win32 utility for compiling the C++ source code. The resource file comprises of various images, information, data required to create programs and utilities using the C++ script. The resource file can be opened, created, converted, and edited using some of the popular software tools, such as Microsoft Visual Studio, Resource Hacker, and ResEdit.

Programs that support RES file

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the RES file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the RES file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the RES file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the RES file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the RES file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the RES file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
