Many, many thanks KRODER

By myself, and as no one replied, I located that file in Windows, but I
didn't know if the Linux one ".rc" file will be compatible with Windows,
that's why I finally scanned all images again (2 days scanning) losing
tags, flags, etc ... it's a pity that kind of issues are not documented.
