rsrc - Tool for embedding binary resources in Go programs.

INSTALL: go get


rsrc.exe [-manifest FILE.exe.manifest] [-ico FILE.ico[,FILE2.ico...]] [OPTIONS...]
  Generates a .syso file with specified resources embedded in .rsrc section,
  aimed for consumption by Go linker when building Win32 excecutables.

The generated *.syso files should get automatically recognized by 'go build'
command and linked into an executable/library, as long as there are any *.go
files in the same directory.

  -arch string
    	architecture of output file - one of: 386, amd64, [EXPERIMENTAL: arm, arm64] (default "amd64")
  -ico string
    	comma-separated list of paths to .ico files to embed
  -manifest string
    	path to a Windows manifest file to embed
  -o string
    	name of output COFF (.res or .syso) file; if set to empty, will default to 'rsrc_windows_{arch}.syso'

Based on ideas presented by Minux.

In case anything does not work, it'd be nice if you could report (either via Github
issues, or via email to, and please attach the input file(s)
which resulted in a problem, plus error message & symptoms, and/or any other details.
