Version info tab missing for application when looking at file properties tab

I have developed a small Win32 Console 'C' Application (say abc.exe) using Visual C++. when i right click on the application executable and choose properties the 3 tabs that are available to me are 'General', 'Security', 'Summary'. The version tab is not available and there is no version information for the file. I have checked the IDE options etc and cannot see how to include this for the exe.

My question is, what settings do I have to set in the IDE or how do I provide this information to be available in the file properties box from windows?
Is it a case that this version info isnt available for a Win32 Console Application/
Thanks.

No. All you have to do is adding a version resource to the project. Select the 'Insert...' menu, choose 'Resource...', then pick 'Version' from the dialog and press the 'New' button.

Thanks,
When I do that it creates a rc and a resource.h file.
Am i correct in saying that I then add these files to the header + resource files in the IDE?

Adding the .rc and resource.h file after worked ok.
Is there any reason that it doesnt add them automatically?
