Product Version (PRODUCTVERSION) of Details Tab of File Property

I am having problems with populating the "Product Version" line of the Details Tab of a file's property. For instance, if you Right Click on a file from within Windows Explorer, you'll see a list of file parameters.  I can populate every other one I need expect for "Product Version".

Attached is the code I'm using in the DLL's (the file I'm creating) resource *.RC file.

What am I doing wrong?

By the way, I have a screen shot of the Details Tab, but I don't know how to post it to this board since it is a BMP file (and it's asking for "Add from URL . . "

I'm using VS.NET 2008 Unmanged C++.

I  have successfully done this with other DLL's but can't for whatever reason do it with this one.

The problem seems to be

#define PROD_VER      1.0

which should actually look more like

#define PROD_VER      "1, 0, 0, 0"

BTW, the same applies to 'VNUM_STR' - a boilerplate version resource would look like
/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
//
// Version
//

VS_VERSION_INFO VERSIONINFO
 FILEVERSION 1,0,0,6
 PRODUCTVERSION 7,0,1,0
 FILEFLAGSMASK 0x17L
#ifdef _DEBUG
 FILEFLAGS 0x1L
#else
 FILEFLAGS 0x0L
#endif
 FILEOS 0x4L
 FILETYPE 0x2L
 FILESUBTYPE 0x0L
BEGIN
    BLOCK "StringFileInfo"
    BEGIN
        BLOCK "040904B0"
        BEGIN
            VALUE "FileDescription", "Sample"
            VALUE "FileVersion", "1, 0, 0, 1"
            VALUE "InternalName", "Sample"
            VALUE "LegalCopyright", "Copyright (C) 2010"
            VALUE "OriginalFilename", "Sample.dll"
            VALUE "ProductName", "Sample"
            VALUE "ProductVersion", "1, 0, 0, 0"
        END
    END
    BLOCK "VarFileInfo"
    BEGIN
        VALUE "Translation", 0x0409, 0x04B0
    END
END
