If I look at the properties of the vpw.exe using explorer I am not shown any version TAB. I assume this is because it has been decided not to add this info in the standard WINDOWS way.

I realize that the version number can (usually) be seen by selecting Help ABOUT VEDIT, but I think it would be better if the version number has also added to this standard pointer, so that the version number and other version info can be viewed using a third party tool such as explorer or ZtreeWin.

I must sheepishly confess that I don't know how to create the version property tab. If someone shares this info with me, I will be happy to add it to VEDIT.

You need to include a VERSIONINFO resource in the .rc file.
MFC includes this by default (even though most programs never seem to change it).
It is equally valid in SDK programs e.g.:-

VS_VERSION_INFO VERSIONINFO
FILEVERSION 4,2,122,3
PRODUCTVERSION 4,2,0,0
FILEFLAGSMASK 0x3fL
#ifdef _DEBUG
FILEFLAGS 0x1L
#else
FILEFLAGS 0x0L
#endif
FILEOS 0x40004L
FILETYPE 0x1L
FILESUBTYPE 0x0L
BEGIN
BLOCK "StringFileInfo"
BEGIN
BLOCK "0c0904b0"
BEGIN
VALUE "Comments", "\0"
VALUE "CompanyName", "Paul's Computer Company\0"
VALUE "FileDescription", "Paul's Graphic Viewer\0"
VALUE "FileVersion", "4.02z3\0"
VALUE "InternalName", "Pgv\0"
VALUE "LegalCopyright", "Copyright 1998\0"
VALUE "LegalTrademarks", "\0"
VALUE "OriginalFilename", "Pgv.exe\0"
VALUE "PrivateBuild", "\0"
VALUE "ProductName", "Paul's Computer Company Pgv\0"
VALUE "ProductVersion", "4, 2, 0, 0\0"
VALUE "SpecialBuild", "\0"
END
END
BLOCK "VarFileInfo"
BEGIN
VALUE "Translation", 0xc09, 1200
END
END

Ian:
Thank you so much; that was precisely the info I needed. All future VEDIT releases will now have the version info.

Ted.
