How to Change, Update or Delete the Version Information

With Resource Tuner, you can easily make visual edits to Version Information, such as version numbers, vendor details (copyrights, trademarks, origins), product name, and original file name. This crucial information appears on the version tab of the EXE file's property sheet dialog, which can be accessed by selecting the Properties Details item from the context menu when right-clicking on the file in Windows Explorer.
