Title: setting version number on windows exe
Post by: Gary on 2016-Feb-02
For the project I am working on I need to set the version and copyright information on a windows EXE file so that when you right click, properties, and then detail (windows 10) it shows all the embedded information like the screen below. I need it to be like the one on the left but mine is the one on the right. I have tried setting it all up in project options but it does not seem to want to carry over to the exe. Is there a 3rd party tool I can use to add the info or can GLB do it directly?

Thanks
Gary

You could try PE Explorer.  There is also a small program on CodeProjects to do that sort of thing, which may be of use to you.

Had a look at PE Explorer and could not find anything to be able to set the fields. Do you know the name of the program on CodeProjects? To be honest I dont know what would be the correct term to search for to find it :(

Thanks for your help

This is the CodeProject project : http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/37133/Simple-Version-Resource-Tool-for-Windows (http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/37133/Simple-Version-Resource-Tool-for-Windows)

There are quite a few programs that will modify the version information around.
