    Default use .rc files in Qt

    Hello i was trying to use .rc files in Qt using like compiler MinGW and worked. But now i'm trying with visual studio and not seems to work. the code is the follow:
    i add in the .pro file:
    Qt Code:
    1. RC_FILE += resources.rc
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    resources.rc:
    Qt Code:
    1. #include <windows.h>
    2. #include "resource.h"
    3.  
    4. PROGRAM RCDATA "C:/Users/moh/Desktop/Example1.exe"
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    resource.h:
    Qt Code:
    1. #ifndef RESOURCE_H_INCLUDED
    2. #define RESOURCE_H_INCLUDED
    3.  
    4. #define PROGRAM "PROGRAM"
    5.  
    6. #endif // RESOURCE_H_INCLUDED
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 


    findresource:
    Qt Code:
    1. HRSRC res=FindResourceA(NULL,"PROGRAM",MAKEINTRESOURCEA(PROGRAM));
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    return error 1813

    Default Re: use .rc files in Qt

    Your RCDATA definition has the wrong syntax. It should be:

    Qt Code:
    1. PROGRAM RCDATA { "C:/Users/moh/Desktop/Example1.exe\0" }
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    In addition, your FindResource call is incorrect. It should be:

    Qt Code:
    1. HRSRC res = FindResourceA( NULL, MAKEINTRESOURCEA(PROGRAM), RT_RCDATA );
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    Please use CODE tags when posting source code so it is more readable. Click "Go Advanced" and then the "#" icon to insert the tags. Paste your code between them.
