Resedit also allows to easily compile a resource dll  from icons and rc files. It also allows the extraction of icons embedded in exe or dll files.
I think there is a section in the oodialog user guide about it.
Worth exploring...

In the extra examples package that you can download from SourceForge from the ooDialog section, there is a makeDLL.rex program and a read me for it that can help.  


I have updated the extra samples package to 0.0.7.  In that I added a simple example, reviewed the makeDLL.ReadMe file and added a read me file to the simple example.

I believe that if you look through that, you will not have any trouble compiling your own resource-only DLL.  It is a lot easier than creating a working NSIS install script.

One thing, since you have been writing your own .rc file, you will need icon and bitmap statements in it for those resources.  You may already know that.  If not take a look at:


in the 0.0.7 package for some help.
