When compiling this RC:

1 VERSIONINFO
FILEVERSION 3,2,1,0
PRODUCTVERSION 3,2,1,0
FILEOS 0x4
FILETYPE 0x1
{
BLOCK "StringFileInfo"
{
      BLOCK "040904E4"
      {
            VALUE "CompanyName", "TSW Solutions, Inc."
            VALUE "FileDescription", "Storeworks"
            VALUE "FileVersion", "3.2.1.0"
            VALUE "InternalName", "Storeworks"
            VALUE "LegalCopyright", "TSW Solutions, Inc."
            VALUE "LegalTrademarks", ""
            VALUE "OriginalFilename", "Storeworks.exe"
            VALUE "ProductName", "Storeworks"
            VALUE "ProductVersion", "3.02.01"
            VALUE "Comments", ""
      }
}

BLOCK "VarFileInfo"
{
      VALUE "Translation", 0x0409 0x04E4
}
}

I'm getting this result in the RES file (opened in ResHacker):


1 VERSIONINFO
FILEVERSION 3,2,1,0
PRODUCTVERSION 3,2,1,0
FILEOS 0x4
FILETYPE 0x1
{
BLOCK "StringFileInfo"
{
      BLOCK "040904E4"
      {
            VALUE "CompanyName", "TSW Solutions, Inc."
            VALUE "FileDescription", "Storeworks.FileVersion"
            VALUE "FileVersion", "3.2.1.0"
            VALUE "InternalName", "StoreworksJLegalCopyright"
            VALUE "LegalCopyright", "TSW Solutions, Inc."
            VALUE "LegalTrademarks", ""
            VALUE "OriginalFilename", "Storeworks.exe4
ProductName"
            VALUE "ProductName", "Storeworks2ProductVersion"
            VALUE "ProductVersion", "3.02.01"
            VALUE "Comments", ""
      }
}

BLOCK "VarFileInfo"
{
      VALUE "Translation", 0x0409 0x04E4
}
}

I have no idea what those  chars are or where they are coming from.
Needless to say it looks very wierd in my Version info properties when selecting Properties
from Windows Explorer. What am I doing wrong?

BLOCK "StringFileInfo"
{
       BLOCK "040904E4"
       {
               VALUE "CompanyName", "TSW Solutions, Inc.\000"
               VALUE "FileDescription", "Storeworks\000"
               VALUE "FileVersion", "3.2.1.0\000"
               VALUE "InternalName", "Storeworks\000"

}

BLOCK "VarFileInfo"
{
       VALUE "Translation", 0x0409 0x04E4
}
