Thanks for the link, I am a volenteer to make a plugin for this ;) (Yes my second, but this is less complicated I think)
OS: winXP
Compiler: mingw
IDE: Code::Blocks SVN WX: 2.8.4 Wish list: faster code completion, easier debugging, refactoring

From what I can assertain, the Dev-C++ principle gets around this by generating the version information as discussed in the link from my previouis post, and then appends this data into an .rc file with a file entry projectname_private.rc.  It then includes your normal resource.rc file before passing the new file to the resource compiler.  This behaviour may also work for your plugin.  It will also save having to modify the existing project resource file before compiling.

Don't forget to make it unicode-compatible! ;-)

I was also curious about this subject regarding version information for applications. Found the following MSDN link detailing everything you need to place into a resource file for versioning your DLL/EXE.

Yeh, I found that link afterwards also, it's now bookmarked! I also found Pelles C IDE which has a nice resource editor.

Even so, at least I know how to edit a basic resource file now by hand with or without Pelles C.

Is there any news for the version info plugin? Or is it implemented into Code::Blocks? I can't see any options for that purpose at the project properties.
Anyway it\'s all the same at the end...

Nope it isn't implemented.

You will need to make your own .rc file for this.

BTW this thread is almost a year old.  :wink:
