I am using Visual Studio 6.0 on a Windows XP system to develop/maintain a console application. The project does have a .RC file containing a VERSION resource. It compiles and builds just fine. Yet after the application is built, and I right-click on the resulting .EXE to get the Properties window, no version data are shown.
Can anyone suggest what I might need to change to get the VERSION info to display properly in the .EXE's Properties? Or is that just something that console applications don't have?
I have used a third-party resource editor to examine the VERSION resource in the .EXE file. It appears to be just fine. All of the information from my .RC file is present in the .EXE. So why doesn't it display in the Properties dialog?
