    Huh? You been looking inside my computer while I'm on the Internet? <g>

    The problem is that this is not a trivial task at all. To manipulate the
    version resource of an application file, you have to "re-create" the whole
    PE structure, update the checksum, etc. This is a very complex and
    failure-prone process. And it still might result in fatal application
    failures. Over the years, I have tried freeware and commercial tools and
    quite often it damaged the .EXE and .DLL files. The encoding (Unicode and
    non-Unicode) makes a big difference and the original compiler that created
    the application.

    But hey, you already had this very good idea five years ago <g>

    But I think that I have a somewhat stable "#edit version resource..."
    compiler directive now. And I bet that Antivirus and anti-spyware
    "protection" systems will love this feature <g>. To be on the safe side,
    I'll mark it as a "use at your own risk" function <g>

    See attached screenshots. I'll enable this directive in the next SB build.
    Thank you for your suggestion.

    You are very welcome
