Default [ICON][TOOL] Resource DLL Generator

In order to replace the mostly horrible icons on Windows's "Desktop Screen", means make them look
as icons in Modern UI style, i.e. flat tiles instead of icons, I have created tool "ResourceDLLGenerator"
which allows you to generate from an icon (tile) set you provide a so-called resource DLL.

If you will it's somehow the counterpart to OblyTile, which is applicable for the Windows 8 "Start Screen" only.

What is it?

What is needed?

How to use?
