Incorrect VALUE in Resource File

Hello,

I'm trying to add version information to my project and have run into a
little snag with displaying the "Description".  To be clear on what I mean,
show the properties on the delphi32.exe file in Explorer, you will see the
Version tab.  On the first three lines of the tab are,

File Version    2.01
Description     Delphi-32 Development Environment
Copyright        Copyright © Borland International 1996

Then the additional values in a listbox.  My problem is with the
"Description" value.  For some reason, the "Description" in my res/rc file
doesn't appear in the second line at the top of the page, but along with the
Comments, Product Name, etc. at the bottom of the dialog box.  Why does this
happen?  Here is my description tag.

VALUE "Description", "HomeBase - New Dimensions Consulting, LLC\0"

Is this the incorrect VALUE for the second line?

Thanks.

Yep, these three lines have the following values:

VALUE "FileVersion", "1.23\0"
VALUE "FileDescription", "Delphi rules !\0"
VALUE "LegalCopyright", "HandMade Software Inc.\0"
