editing Rc files in visual studio

It would be nice to know how to edit them in VS(CE 2013 in particular), currently it throw lots of errors.

Thanks.

/me uses Notepad++. MSVC is only used to build by me (and MOSTLY I use GCC). Do you just open the RC files or did you use RosBE to create project files and open these? https://www.reactos.org/wiki/Building_with_MSVC

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

Well editing the files would be easier with a GUI editor(mostly for dialogs) and most resource editors freak out while using mirroring in the files.
for the rest of the stuff i use Notepad++ too.

the issues are mostly with the headers, but i forgot how to use VS properly :?
