in thread How to add file version to a executable made from Perl script ?

When I try to run the command exe_update.exe, I am getting the following usage message in return, seems I am not using the command in correct manner.

C:\Working\TEM\Source_Code\PatchMgmtSG\TEMAutomation\fixlettester>exe_update.p--info FileVersion=1.2 FixletTester.exe Usage: exe_update.pl --console --icon file.ico [--manifest file.xm --info key=value --manifestargs key=value file.exe

Pls suggest ...

    Have a coffe/tea/water break, then read Behind the GUI lives the Shell and the docs again

    I usually use something like this

    #!/usr/bin/perl -- use strict; use warnings; system 'pp', '-x', 'satin.pl', '-o', 'satin.exe', '-N', 'LegalTrademarks=dLegalTrademarks', '-N', 'Comments=dComments', '-N', 'FileVersion=0.6.6.6', '-N', 'ProductVersion=0.6.6.6', '-N', 'OriginalFilename=satin.pl', '-N', 'InternalName=satin.exe', '-N', 'FileDescription=dFileDescription', '-N', 'LegalCopyright=dLegalCopyright', '-N', 'CompanyName=Satin', '-N', 'ProductName=Satin', ;

    Though there are WinXP problems Bug #69570 for Win32-Exe: create_resource_section() fails

    I don't know if http://www.cavapackager.com/ has the same problem, oh well

      Hi I tried with the following command, but still I am not able to see the version information from File->Properties->Version tab. I tried on windows 2003 machine instead of WinXP.

      pp -x hello.pl -o hello2.exe -N ProductVersion=0.6 -N FileVersion=0.4

      What am I missing here ? Pls help..
