It compiles them with winres.exe automatically when added. Make sure that "Include With Compilation" is checked under the Files tab in the project properties. Also, it goes odd when adding a resource file. IT might be bettr to create a *.rc file with say notepad, than add that file to your project.

Writing out the commands yourself, it would be something like:

gcc -c source-file -oobject-file
windres -iresource-file -oobject-file
gcc all-your-object-files -mwindows -oexecutable-to-create

I'm pretty sure Dev-C++ takes care of doing that though.


I checked. Unless you're writting your own makefile, Dev-C++ seems to arrange for windres to compile it. So just click 'Add to project', select the resource file, compile, and it should work.
