File Versions

3 posts in this topic

OK, I'm still pretty much new to AutoIt.

I have developed a utility for my department to use.

What I'm wondering is if there is a way to have the .exe's properties show a version number other than the version of AutoIt I'm using?

Right now if I go into the properties and "Version" tab I see "File Version" in the "Other version information" box with a value of 3,3,6,1...which is the version of AutoIt I'm running. I would like it to say the current version of my utility 2.0.5...maybe I have overlooked it but is there a way to do that?

I will continue research on this end. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you download the full version of SciTE4AutoIt3, which you can find here, you also get a load of additional goodies. One of these is Jos' AutoIt3Wrapper which lets you add directives to your script like this:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Description=                ;Description field
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Fileversion=                ;File Version
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_ProductVersion=             ;Product Version. Default is the AutoIt3 version used.
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Language=                   ;Resource Language code . default 2057=English (United Kingdom)

I would strongly recommend that you download and install this full version of SciTE to replace the cut-down version that is bundled with the AutoIt install - I have yet to meet anyone who has regretted it. :idea:


P.S. Welcome to the Autoit forum. :)
