OT - How to put app info into exe / dll (VC9)


#1

This is slightly off-topic.

I cannot for the life of me make VC9 Express put the application info into the binary (e.g. Version, description, company etc.) I tried everything I could think of with manifests, but I can’t figure this one out. I know VC9 Express doesn’t have a lot of support for resource editing, but I imagine you should be able to specify these things.

I noticed that the Jucer is also missing this info.

Thanks!

Okay, my RC file was messed up. VS_VERSION_INFO id was not good enough, I had to replace it with 1. Don’t ask me why.
