I import String tables from other RES files that have unicode strings. They look fine in the editor. When I save the projects as a new RES file the string tables are no longer unicode?

What am I doing wrong?

Hi Jeff,

Sorry for the delay with my reply. It looks like a bug in Resource Builder. Please use the following workaround while we fix it:
1. Import your strings.
2. Save new file as UNICODE RC file.
3. Then use Tools | Compile to compile RC to RES.

Please let me know if this helps.
Best regards,
Igor Sitikov.

Actually all you have to do is just Compile the .RES file.

The Save As .RES doesn't work. Like you said must be a bug.

You can also save as UNICODE RC file but it is an extra step since the strings get imported as Unicode. It was just the save as that was not working.

I ended up using sircc32.exe in a batch file to add the .RES files to the EXE. No need to use the GUI unless I want to edit one of the strings.
