I have a windows application built using c#. I am using a resource file in the application. The application works correctly whie building.
The problem is when I am installing this application using a windows setup project, I am not able to modify the resource file on the fly.

I want to modify the localized resource file. In the setup path, resource file is coming in the form of dll. The resource file in itself is not getting displayed. When I am explictly adding the resource file in the setup and then modify the resource file then the change is not getting reflected in the exe.

Hi,

Add the "Localized Resources" project output group.
