Opening existing files is similar to creating a new file.

Files can be added to the package by selecting the menu item pack -> add, or by dragging the files on the EDGELIB Packer window. Delete or extract files by selecting the files and using the pack menu.

Switch the active vendor by clicking on pack -> change vendor. Only files with the vendor signature "FREE" or vendors with correct unlock codes can be opened.

Configuring vendor signatures for the EDGELIB Packer

Vendor signatures are used to protect the resources within the package files. One unique vendor signature is available for an EDGELIB licensee and can be requested through the licensee area.

As a default, the EDGELIB Packer tool contains one active vendor signature: "FREE". To add a new signature, go through tools -> configure vendors. Add new vendors by adding new lines with a four character vendor signature and an unlock code.
