This method registers a named resource, which can contain a number of resources, and returns a token to be used when requesting this resource. It is not an error if the resource is already registered; if the number in the cResource parameter is less than what is already registered, resources will be deallocated to the new count. To unregister the resource, pass a count of zero in cResource.
