Thanks for testing Alexy,

I got it working, but there are differences:
    When invoking WinRes, it looks as if the project directory is used 
as the base path.
    With fpcres, I think the directory in which the resource list file 
is located is used as the base path.

In my source code I had {$R resources/resource_list.rc}, so I can either 
1) change that to just {$R resource_list.rc} and move the resource list 
to my project folder root directory,
or 2) leave it as is, with the resource list in the same directory as 
the resource files, and just remove the resource directory from the 
paths in the RC file.

Option 1 works with both fpcres and WinRes.

Thank you, Russ
