Custom Version Information

The current version of IExpress uses the default version information built in to WEXTRACT.EXE for the properties of a file when a user views properties of a package in the shell.

This can make it difficult for a user to know what version or from whom an EXE was downloaded. IExpress offers a mechanism to replace the version information in the package EXE with any thing the author chooses or automatically from another source file. This functionality is currently not implemented in the IExpress wizard, so using this feature will require editing the project SED or creating an override file.
