Remapping resource script ID's

This is code which a lot of people on the WinDev list keep requesting from me. It resequences the define's in a resource.h file. I use it primarily for DLL's when I don't want the resource id's to overlap with id's used in other DLL's or in the main program. The program simply renumbers all ID_?, IDC_? And IDS_? starting at a given value. A .inf file is written which retains the settings for future use. IDS_?'s are maintained at their offset within each 16 string table (ie "IDS_ % 16" is unchanged). This is the source and a build (VC 5) for the RCRemap utility. I developed it from source from an individual whose name I've forgotten. The code has worked well for me [disclaimer on] but I make no claims as to its fitness for any particular purpose. Use at your own risk [disclaimer off]. The code is public domain as far as I'm concerned.

    2. In Win98 on a Netware 5 server-client base, there have been many errors with internet connection to certain sites. In Win95, there is a winsock2.dll but there is none for Win98 and there seems to be no way in hell that Novell or Microsoft is going to make a patch of the equivalent Win95 winsock2.dll. Is there a way I can create my own Winsock2.dll for Win98?

    Thank you,
