how to add file info in CPP to compiled EXE?
I'm fairly new to CPP, although I have a bit of background in VB, Perl.
I've finished writing a simple console application that writes some registry keys.
I compiled it, and the application works as designed in all tests so far.
what I'm trying to do is add version and other file information to the compiled EXE.
I'm using MinGW to compile on my Windows computer.
The specific things I'm trying to add are what comes up when you right-click on the EXE file and choose Properties. Thing such as "Product Version", "Copyright", and "Description".
I've looked around, and I found RCVERSION, and used it to create a "version.h" file, but I don't know what to do from here, or even if this is what I need to do at all.
I'd appreciate any guidance in accomplishing this. Please let me know if there are any other details you need.
Thanks in advance!
