Hi I watched your video and did it on my PC step by step until I got to this message:

Error: Failed to sign 'bootres.dll': %1 is not a valid Win32 application. (2147942593)

Here is a screenshot:

From what I can tell, this happens because of a bad bootres.dll file. Not sure why this happens, but I'm investigating.

Can you post your new and old bootres.dll file here (or link to it here) and then I can take a look to ensure that it is readable?

Sure.

Okay, so it does appear to be unreadable.

Can you try creating the bootres.dll file again and see if it works. I'm beginning to think that this is a problem with restorator trial since so many people are having trouble, but I can't seem to reproduce the error myself.

The picture I was making was made in Paint.Net and I saved it as a BMP.

The error seems to show that the actual bootres.dll file is corrupt instead of the pictures inside of it. This would therefore indicate that your pictures are okay. My guess is that it is to do with the way the dll file is recompiled. It then can't be signed because it's corrupt.

Ok. I will make a new bootres.dll file and see if it lets me sign it.

If there is any problems during the process, I will reply to this issue. Thanks.

I can confirm that this is caused by Restorator 2007 trail. The bootres.dll is fine, until compiled by the resource editor. After that it becomes corrupt and unreadable. Update your video to warn users from not replacing the file if the signing fails, as it can break thier system.

Yeah it definitely seems to be an issue with Restorator. I've added a warning to the video until I get a fix for this!

I'm afraid there will no longer be an update on this, as I am no longer working on a solution.
