Adding version resource to Delphi 1; need 16 bit resource workshop?


I want to add a version resource to my 16 bit Delphi 1 program.  Does anyone know of a freeware/shareware utility that will allow me to do this?  It seems that I need some kind of Resource Workshop program but I don't see this as part of Delphi or shipping with Windoze.  I want the cheapest functional solution because this is not REALLY important to me but I would like to do it to learn more about resources.

Thank you!

You can use a freeware utility that I wrote that allows you to create the resource script with version information, compile it with BRCC.EXE (that comes with Delphi).

although the resulting resource file can be used for Delphi 1.0 applications, you need Windows 95/98/NT in order to run Versioneer.

You can download Versioneer 2.1 from here:
