I tried to put version info in a resource script. rcc didn't squawk,

OPTLINK : Error 152: Cannot yet convert VERSION resources from 16 to
32-bit 
------------------------8< snip >8------------------------

Is there a way to get version info in a Win32 executable?

Use "rcc -32 -D__NT__ app4" instead to generate a 32-bit resource file. bye, Christof -- http://cmeerw.org JID: cmeerw jabber.at mailto cmeerw at web.de ...and what have you contributed to the Net?

It worked. Thank you. I shouldn't have missed that switch. I was
converting a little project from BCB5 and had been fighting it too
long. It's good to know (this morning after RTFM) when using -32,
"-D__NT__" isn't required.
