How to edit the version information in EXE files

The Version Information resource contains special information about the file: product version, file version numbers, file description, company name, trademark and copyright notice. This information is displayed on the version tab of the property sheet dialog displayed by selecting the "properties" item from the right mouse button context menu in the Windows Explorer.

Steps to Edit The Version Information

1. Open your EXE or DLL file with Rersource Tuner and expand the Version folder that’s found in the Resource Tree view, then select the version information item to be edited in the Resource Tree view.

2. Open the version information for editing using the Resource Editor button or the popup menu which is displayed by right-clicking the Resource Tree. Or simply double-click the resource item directly.

Any change you make can be restored prior to quitting the editor using the OK button. To abort your changes quit the editor using the Cancel button.
