For my product to pass Microsoft Certification for Windows Server 2012 all files must have Company Name & Product Name file properties.

I have some files that are missing these properties, how can I retrospectively add these properties to an existing file?

What kind of files are you talking about (exe, dll, cab, pdf, etc), and what kind of product (compiled msi installer, standalone exe, office plugin, etc)?

I'm not sure whether I will be able to answer your question, but I'm just preempting what other experts will need to know before trying to address your issue.

The values you are trying to change are in the exe/dll, change them in your source and then compile them. These should be part of your Product Properties.
You can use reshack.exe to do it after the fact, or the xn-resource editor, but it would be easier to do in your projects properties before compiling.

Predominately the files are the files with extension .compiled that are produced by Visual Studio when creating a precompiled ASP.NET web application.

The fields are very editable in VS, in the properties menu of the project. It's best to recompile them once you've done that. It is possible to edit the exe/dll after it's compiled, but if you have the source, you should do it there.

I have already added AssemblyCompany and AssemblyProduct attributes in Visual Studio.
In my Web Deployment project under Output Assemblies I have already choosen "Merge all outputs to a single assembly" and the resulting DLL does have the attributes in.

However, because I have NOT enabled "Allow this precompiled site to be updateable" the build process creates .compiled files for each aspx page... e.g.  default.aspx.compiled

These files do not have the product name and company name attributes in them and they cause my Microsoft Certification test to fail.
