Bug #121655, was updated on 2000-Nov-05 00:23
Here is a current snapshot of the bug.
Project: MinGW - Minimalist GNU for Windows
Bug Group: None
Summary: windres bugs
Details: Here's a sample for the CLASS "bug":
Test DIALOG 0, 0, 419, 150
STYLE DS_MODALFRAME | DS_3DLOOK | DS_CENTER | WS_POPUP | WS_VISIBLE | WS_CAPTION | WS_SYSMENU
FONT 8, "MS Sans Serif"
CONTROL "&OK", IDOK, "button", BS_PUSHBUTTON | BS_CENTER | WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | WS_TABSTOP, 214, 116, 50, 14
windres.exe -i test.rc -o tst.o
=> "windres.exe: test.rc:8: parse error"
CLASS Test (without quotes) works, but M$ rc.exe and Borland brc32.exe report an error :
- rc.exe: "test.rc (8): error RC2104 : undefined keyword or key name: Test"
- brc32.exe : "Error test.rc 8 7: Expecting quoted string"
The MENUEX bug is more complex, it seems that MENUEX are badly compiled so when trying to load them, an error is returned, and binary resource editors can't load the executable.
