The BeginUpdateResource function returns a handle that can be used by the UpdateResource function to add, delete, or replace resources in an executable file.
Code examples:
Storing registration key in the resources of an executable file
HANDLE BeginUpdateResource(
    LPCTSTR pFileName,
    BOOL bDeleteExistingResources
FoxPro declaration:
DECLARE INTEGER BeginUpdateResource IN kernel32;
    STRING pFileName,;
    INTEGER bDeleteExistingResources

[in] Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies the executable file in which to update resources.

[in] Specifies whether to delete the pFileName parameter"s existing resources.
Return value:
If the function succeeds, the return value is a handle that can be used by the UpdateResource and EndUpdateResource functions.
My comment:
An application must be able to obtain write access to the executable file; it cannot be currently executing. If pFileName does not specify a full path, the system searches for the file in the current directory.
