The rct file extension is associated with Microsoft Visual Studio, an integrated development tool for Microsoft Windows. The rct files are used for resource templates.

A resource template is a customized resource that is saved as an .rct file. A resource template can then serve as a starting point for creating other resources. Resource templates save time in developing additional resources or groups of resources that share features, such as standard controls and other repeated elements. For example, users might want to include a Help button and an icon of a company logo in several dialog boxes. To do so quickly, they can create a new dialog box template and customize it with the logo and the Help button. Basically the .rct files save time when creating new .rc resources files with similar settings and features.

To create a new resource compiler template, right-click on your project in the Solution Explorer, then select Add → New Item..., and pick the "Native Resource Template" from the list.
