1 26/05/2003 keith.stanier I don't know if you've see or tried ActiveX Manager, here it is for you to try. Its still available from 325 KB
2 26/05/2003 keith.stanier I don't know if you use VB6 maximised or if anyone has asked you about this.  I've been used to VB5 always being maximised, if you maximise it on startup.  This was one of my biggest gripes with VB6.  Just to save anyone going into the registry and messing things up.  Here is VB6 Maximised.reg to maximise the VB6 windows on startup. 221 bytes
3 26/12/2003 keith.stanier FREEWARE utility to view, modify, add, rename and delete resources in Win32 executables and resource files. Incorporates an internal resource compiler and decompiler. Works on Win9x, WinNT, Win2000 and WinXP.

Its downloadable from:

Resource Hacker™ has been designed to:

1. View resources in Win32 executable files (*.exe, *.dll, *.cpl, *.ocx) and in Win32 resource files (*.res) in both their compiled and decompiled formats.

2. Extract (save) resources to file in:
*.res format; as a binary; or as decompiled resource scripts or images. Icons, bitmaps, cursors, menus, dialogs, string tables, message tables, accelerators, Borland forms and version info resources can be fully decompiled into their respective formats, whether as image files or  *.rc text files.

3. Modify (rename or replace) resources in executables. Image resources (icons, cursors and bitmaps) can be replaced with an image from a corresponding image file (*.ico, *.cur, *.bmp), a *.res file or even another *.exe file. Dialogs, menus, stringtables, accelerators and messagetable resource scripts (and also Borland forms) can be edited and recompiled using the internal resource script editor. Resources can also be replaced with resources from a *.res file as long as the replacement resource is of the same type and has the same name.

4. Add new resources to executables.
Enable a program to support multiple languages, or add a custom icon or bitmap (company logo etc) to a program's dialog.

5. Delete resources.
Most compilers add resources into applications which are never used by the application. Removing these unused resources can reduce an application's size. 541 KB
