Display Version info in Properties Dialog

I have version info contained in the executable -- if you use the Windows API calls to query for version info, you get it (ie. using VerQueryValue(...)).

But if you right click the mouse on the .exe while in Explorer, and select properties, you don't get a 'Version' tab on the property sheet, as you do in many other applications (like MS Word or Netscape, etc.).  How do I do this?

(I'm using Borland C++ 5.01A.)

It should work. I am not sure what is missing. Can you see the version resource in Resource Workshop?

Check what language the version resource in your application is compared to that of your PC

Ensure your versioninfo looks like this:

1 VERSIONINFO
FILEVERSION 1,0,0,0
PRODUCTVERSION 1,0,0,0
FILEOS VOS__WINDOWS32
FILETYPE VFT_APP
{
   BLOCK "StringFileInfo" {
      BLOCK "041904E3" {
         VALUE "CompanyName","Company name here\000\000"
         VALUE "FileDescription","File description here\000\000"
         VALUE "FileVersion","1.00\000\000"
         VALUE "InternalName","Internal name here\000\000"
         VALUE "LegalCopyright","Copyright,1996-1997\000\000"
         VALUE "OriginalFilename","Original filename here\000\000"
         VALUE "ProductName","Product name here\000\000"
         VALUE "ProductVersion","1.00\000\000"
      }
   }
   BLOCK "VarFileInfo" {
      VALUE "Translation",0x419,0x4E3
   }
}
