       <data goes here>

An application accesses this resource with the following statements:

   hFound = FindResource(hInstance, "TEST", RT_RCDATA);
   hRes = LoadResource(hInstance, hFound);
   lpBuff = LockResource(hRes);
   // use lpBuff to access the resource contents
   bResult = UnlockResource(hRes);
   bResult = FreeResource(hRes);
